Asafoetida/Fenugreek Blend

$8.00$11.50

This powdered gum resin is used in Indian cooking.  It has a foul smell, but when cooked it takes on an onion/garlic/leek flavor.  Known as food of the Gods, it is also said to aid with digestion.

Asafoetida (Hing) is often used as an onion/garlic substitute in Indian dishes. Use sparingly–a little goes a long way.  This blend uses Fenugreek as a processing agent rather than the more commonly found wheat.

Cardamom Seed

$9.25$29.25

Part of the ginger family, Cardamom means grains of paradise.  Historically, Cardamom has been used to flavor foods, as an ingredient in perfumes, and even for medicinal purposes.

Known for its sweet and spicy taste, Cardamom seed is used equally in sweet dishes such as breads and cakes and in savory dishes such as meats and curries. Use in baked goods, sprinkle on oatmeal, ice cream, or iced melon, and add to curry. Cardamom has a sharp aroma and distinctive flavor that can be compared to anise or eucalyptus.  For a Middle Eastern treat, sprinkle in your coffee.

Cinnamon ~ Ceylon

$8.00$24.00

Ceylon – the true Cinnamon, scientifically speaking – has a mellow, citrusy flavor & a woodsy, floral aroma; more subtle with less of a bite than Cassia. Hailed for health benefits & considered more precious than gold in ancient Egypt.

Perfect for dishes with few competing flavors, such as custards, puddings, baked fruits and whipped cream, or simply sprinkled on oatmeal, yogurt or toast.  Use also in sauces and curries, and add to lamb and vegetable dishes.

Cinnamon ~ Indonesian Cassia

$6.00$18.00

The Greek poet, Sappho, referenced Cassia in 7th century B.C. Though not the “true” Cinnamon, Cassia (also called Chinese Cinnamon) is often sold as Cinnamon in the U.S., where it’s preferred for its strong, spicy and lingering flavor.

Use in both sweet and strong savory dishes: candies, baked goods, meats, preserves, curries, and hot beverages. Cassia, with its intense aromatic qualities and taste, is the popular choice for Cinnamon Rolls.

Use in pastries, puddings, cooked fruits, and cakes, or sprinkle on oatmeal for a treat. Also yummy in stews and vegetables. Pairs well with nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger.

Cumin

$6.00$20.50

Native to the Mediterranean and South Asia, Cumin is also a signature flavor for Central American and European cuisines. As a symbol of love and fidelity during the Middle Ages, wedding guests carried Cumin in their pockets, and wives of soldiers added it to baked bread for their husbands. Our Cumin is hand harvested, and has a high percentage of essential oils, delivering more powerful aromatics, and a slightly astringent, citrusy quality.
