Yes we do. We grind and blend all of our seasoning products, this way we know exactly what the ingredients are as well as guaranteeing quality and freshness to you.
Yes we do. Some of our customers are unable to have certain spices so upon request we craft blends to suit their dietary needs at no extra cost.
Yes, all of our seasoning blends are gluten-free. They are also preservative and additive free. No MSG, No Soy, No artificial colours or flavours.
We strive to obtain locally grown herbs and spices from farmers and growers first. When we can't do this we support local businesses and purchase via them. Their herbs and spices are imported from all over the world. All blends and flavoured salts are made by us.
In the future we are planning on growing our own spray free herbs and spices.
The flavour of spices will be extended if stored in a cool, dark, dry place and out of the sunlight.
Avoid clear spice jars and store in an airtight tin, canister or tinted jar.
The cupboard is an excellent place to store your spices - be sure to keep them away from the stove/oven or dishwasher to avoid heat, moisture and condensation.
Spices don't expire but they do loose their quality in aroma and flavour fairly quickly if not stored right. Stored correctly they will last longer than 1 year in air tight containers and salts will last indefinitely.
Do not store a variety of spices together as this will contaminate each blends aroma.
Our blends do not contain anti caking agents or preservatives so some will clump together sometimes due to the humidity in the air.
Even though it might do this there is nothing wrong with your spices so all you need to do is to crush them up using your hand, coffee grinder,rolling pin or the back of a spoon.
