So often when I am baking the aromas of Cinnamon and of Nutmeg float from my kitchen to the other rooms in my home. In desserts or in warm cereals when the weather is chilly, these are two of the spices that I often use. Now, my Spice Rack contains mostly McCormick containers of savory fragrant useful baking ingredients.
History and facts are two fascinating areas for me. This past weekend I stopped in and browsed through McCormick's website. With a click here and a click there I learned more about the spices that I have been using for many years. :)
On the back of my kitchen door hangs a double sided Durkee laminated chart that has always given me quick info about what herbs and spices would work well with various foods.
The printed charts are no longer mailed as incentives to cooks. Mine is still used and is probably 30+ years young. It's been a part of my kitchen for a loong time. However, it's great to visit a website with the History & Facts!
Now, I'd best get back to the K2, P2 ribbed hat that I've started knitting - for a gift. Tomorrow the oven will be heated. :)
