Holiday Spice Guide
Do you ever feel like eating something festive during the holidays, and then wonder what the flavor that you are looking for is? The Holiday season is such a favorite for baking and creating dishes that are filled with spices that you do not normally use. All the way from Thanksgiving to New Years Day, we love creating new dishes or timeless ones. This holiday spice guide will help you with what to use in your cooking.
Nutmeg is what makes the most favorite flavors of the holidays such as Egg Nog, and Pumpkin Pie, and apple pie. Not only is it used for sweet treats, but this spice can also be used for roasting vegetables like carrots or sweet potatoes. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed.
Clearly cinnamon is a favorite year-round. It has that smell and flavor that scream holiday warmness after a day of sledding or a brisk walk in the cold. Coming in for a cup of hot chocolate with cinnamon sprinkled on it is divine, but have you ever sprinkled it in your coffee?
What a clever name for a warm spice. Allspice has sweet aromas of cinnamon and nutmeg, as well as cloves. This spice is usually ground and put into puddings or bread, as well as pies such as pumpkin or apple. Our whole version can be used when making mulled wine or even brining a turkey.
These are just a few of the flavors of the holidays that we love. Time off of work, sitting around with loved ones, what else are you going to do but cook and enjoy the flavors of the season. If you can not remember the last time you used your cinnamon, nutmeg, or allspice, we suggest throwing them out and treating yourself to the freshness of our spice station spices, all shipped to your doorstep. Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
