Hello Everyone,

We were just checking in and are so pleased by your excitement. To address a few questions:

We are located in Shelburne and have a VT Dept. of Health inspected production facility in our home, and we are Certified Organic by NOFA.

Our ingredients are grown all around the world (not many certified organic cardamom growers in Vermont), but we blend, grind,and package all of the spices ourselves.

We developed the spice blends to be very easy to use. Whatever you are normally cooking, just leave out the regular spices and add a tablespoon of two of one of these blends (we start with two tablespoons in a family sized meal). We even have a friend who doesn't spice a dish, puts our tins out on the table, and lets everyone spice their own plate! They are easy to experiment with. Try adding a curry blend to burgers or a soup.

With cooking, many of the flavors develop more complexity. For example, with the Vindaloo, a minute of cooking on "dry heat" when you brown the protein ingredient, before adding broth or coconut milk, brings out more flavors. I also love to add onions to many of my dishes, and a browning them really adds to the richness of a sauce.

For crock pot cooking, they should work really well, but our chicken curry recipe only takes about 5 minutes of prep time and 30 minutes on the stove, so it is pretty fast anyway.

Our website has many recipes. You can also order there if you do not have a local store carrying the spices, but we are getting more stores in Vermont and New England all of the time.

Thanks Astrid and we hope that you all have fun cooking!

Thora & Ed

  1. I would love to try it on this wonderful organic pork roast I bought! Sounds sooo yummy!!

  2. I think I would have to make ribs with it, I usually put a dry rub on my ribs for the first part of the cooking then put on some melted butter and brown sugar over it to glaze. Then I think I would have to make a bacon explosion, it would go well with this spice.

  3. The perfection chicken sandwich with avocado and chedder sounds gooood! I would also try this on some fish (tilapia or salmon).

  4. Chicken salad! Or just to smell...I really enjoy the smell of good spices. (this is Mary Catherine, btw)

  5. I would try the Perfection Chicken, or invent my own! I love trying new spices and seeing what comes of the recipe!

  6. I want to try the chicken! Sounds yummy.

  7. The perfection chicken sounds wonderful.

  8. Everything sounds good, but I think the first thing I'd try would be the Citrus Pepper Scrambled Eggs.
