Everyone has their salt and their pepper in the cupboard, ready to add a bit of flavouring to soups, sauces and cooked meats, but do you happen to have any other spices to hand? Do you know how much difference the right spice can make to a nicely prepared meal? Will it even make a difference as to how you value your spices? Well it should!
The right spice can really help add that extra bit of ‘oomph’ to a recipe, so having a spice rack full of spices, no matter how infrequently you use them, is essential. We have put together a small list of essential spices you need in your kitchen or pantry.
Cinnamon – Great for both savoury and sweet dishes, this adds an extra kick to your baked goods or to a classic hot chocolate. Mix it with sugar for your churros or just add it plain to add spice and heat to your dishes!
Curry Powder – This is perfect for soups, salsas, sauces and much more than just curry. Curry powder is great for adding a little bit of every kind of spice when you’re not quite sure if just one will do the trick.
Ginger – Popular in east Asian dishes, adding ginger to any pork balls or stuffing gives it a bit of extra flavour. It is also great on its own or with lemon and hot water to ward away colds and sore throats.
Garlic – In a powder or in a salt, Garlic brings a sense of Italy right into your kitchen. Try not to use too much or the scent and flavour will overpower everything else, but the right amount can do wonders to your cooking!
Whether you’re looking for a state-of-the-art spice rack or some other kitchen appliance, Price Kitchens has everything you need to kit out your perfect kitchen.
