HERBS, SPICES AND SEASONINGS IN THE KITCHEN

 HERBS, SPICES AND SEASONINGS IN THE KITCHEN
Compliment of the season! Tomorrow, our kitchens will  definitely be the most busy place in our homes, am I  right?
Well you already know why! This yuletide season cannot be complete without celebrating good mouth watering delicacies!

Owing to this fact, I see the need to make sure we have the right  herbs, spices and seasonings in our kitchens.

 There are several of them, earlier in one of my postings, I mentioned the most important – the SALT.

Lets continue from where we stopped. Don’t forget that without these herbs, spices and seasonings in the  kitchen, cooking any good food will be boring, blank and tasteless!  

BAY LEAVES


These leaves are known for their pungent flavour. Even though the whole leaves are  used for cooking, they are usually removed before serving. The leaves are  ideal for the preparation of  Jollof Rice amongst pthers.

ONIONS


GARLIC







GINGER

Ginger is a fresh, pungent root sold fresh, dried or ground. It is used as a confection or condiment and  may be found crystallized or candied, ground or as a syrup.





NUTMEG










CLOVES







CINNAMON
This is a popular sweet spice used for flavouring baked food. It gotten from the aromatic bark of types of laurel trees and  sold as sticks or ground. Using this for some of your baked food would not be a bad idea at all!







… a good bite of cinnamon rolls for Christmas!

CURRY POWDER
Curry powder is very common in Nigerian kitchens, it is usually  a blend of spices commonly used to flavour dishes. Most curry powders will include coriander, cumin, chili powder, and turmeric. This is a must in the kitchen, especially for stews, sauces and assorted rice delicacies!









WHITE PEPPER POWDER




AS WELL AS OTHER PEPPERS…



















THE LIST CONTINUES, ADD YOURS IN YOUR KITCHEN! 
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A BLOSSOMING NEW YEAR AHEAD!
