When my husband and I first got married, I had just started cooking gluten and dairy free and had no idea what I was doing. So, I stuck with bland chicken dishes and veggies. My husband would often opt for cereal instead, so I thought he just really liked cereal, but I finally figured out he needed more flavor! I began experimenting with different herbs and spices, and once I started adding more flavor to my dishes, he ditched the cereal. Now, no matter what dish I’m making, I make sure to add extra spices to it. But, choosing the right brand spices is just as important as adding them to the recipe.
Spicely Organics Spice Review
When Spicely Organics reached out to offer their products for my review, I couldn’t wait to try them, as I’m always on the search for quality, organic spices and now am just as picky as my husband is about added flavor.
Immediately upon opening the package I noticed the intense aroma of the spices. I’ve never experienced that with store bought bottles or bulk spices. Spices in stores sit for long periods of time before being sold and bulk spices are constantly exposed to air, so they lose their freshness. Before even opening the bottles, the freshness of these spices was already apparent. The spices had so much flavor, I was able to use less than I would from a store bought spice. These spices took cooking to a whole new level.
I tried the Zaatar seasoning, a Middle Eastern mix made with organic white sesame seeds, thyme, sumac, marjoram and savory, and it added just the right amount of flavor to my mixed vegetables. This would also make a great dip when mixed with olive oil, for breads or pitas. The curry powder is so earthy and has so much more flavor than I’ve had from other store bought curry spices. The Cajun Seasoning was one of my favorites, I sprinkled it on some cooked chicken and it added the perfect amount of heat. I’m looking forward to making homemade organic vanilla extract with the vanilla bean that came in the gift set.
