Herb and Spice Tips

Herb and Spice Tips

  • For long-cooking dishes, add herbs and spices an hour or less
    before serving. Cooking spices for too long may result in overly
    strong flavors.

  • Finely crush dried herbs before adding to your dish after

  • Do not use dried herbs in the same quantity as fresh. In most
    cases, use 1/3 the amount in dried as is called for fresh.

  • Cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and allspice have a special affinity for
    sweet dishes.

  • Use a light hand when seasoning with spices and herbs. Your goal is
    to compliment your dish without crowding out the flavor of the
    food. Remember, it’s usually impossible to “un-spice” a dish!
