Produced from the leaves, stems, or flowers of aromatic plants, herbs can be used dry or fresh. Dried herbs are readily available and convenient. Because drying herbs alters their flavors and aromas, you should slightly alter recipes when replacing fresh herbs with dried herbs. Use less dry herb than you would fresh herb, as the loss of moisture in dried herbs strengthens and concentrates their flavor.
Produced from the bark, buds, or seeds of aromatic plants, spices have long been used as flavor additives for both sweet and savory recipes. They are generally used in dried form, either whole or ground. For optimum potency, purchase our whole spices and grind them just before use.

Garlic and onion are aromatic staples used in nearly all of the world's cuisines. They are most often separated into cloves / bulbs, peeled, sliced, minced, or crushed. Our pre-prepped garlic and onion eliminates the tear-inducing task of chopping these pungent alliums! When using garlic, note that the more finely the cloves are crushed, the stronger the flavor will be. Additionally, cooking reduces garlic's pungency; the longer it is cooked, the milder it becomes.
Available in many forms, salt (sodium chloride) is obtained from one of two different sources: mining or evaporating from seawater. Salt suppresses bitter flavors, making sweet and sour flavors more prominent. Its flavor won't evaporate or dissipate during cooking, so it should be added to food carefully.
Peppercorns are berries grown on trees in tropical regions of the world. Pepper also lends a range of distinctive flavors to a variety of dishes. Their type and flavor greatly depends on time of harvest. Whole peppercorns produce optimum potency when ground just before use. However, if you're looking to cut down on preparation time, we also carry a large selection of convenient pre-ground options.
