A-Z of Spices, Herbs & Seasonings


Ajwain

Tiny Seeds with Strong Flavour
Ajwain (Ajowan) is a little seed similar to lovage and caraway seeds. It has quite a stong flavour and is commonly used along side cumin in many Indian dishes.

Allspice

Whole & Ground Dried Allspice Berries
Allspice is not, as its name suggests, a blend of different spices. It is the tiny fruit of a Mexican plant that is commonly used in Caribbean cuisine. It tastes like cinnamon, clove and pepper - hence its name "all spice".

Aniseed

Little Seeds with Distinct Flavour
Aniseed has a flavour that resembles liquorice, though it is not the same as the liquorice plant. Aniseed is a popular flavouring and is often snacked on.

Asafoetida

This powder is created from plant resin. It has a pungent aroma which disappears on cooking adding a savoury, meaty flavour to dishes.

Bay Leaves

Bay Leaves in 20g & 200g Value Packs
The Bay Leaf is used primarily in Mediterranean and Indian cuisine. They are used whole and gradually release their flavours whilst a dish is cooking.

Basil

Basil - dried and "grow your own"

Bouquet Garni

Seasoning favourite for casseroles, soups and sauces.

Caraway Seeds

Tangy, Sour Aniseed Flavoured Seeds
Caraway seeds are similar to aniseed in flavour as well as looks. They are popular in Germany, where they are used to flavour sauerkraut and cakes.

Cardamom

Whole Black & Green Cardamoms
There are two types of cardamom: green cardamom, which is sweeter and used in lighter curries and desserts, and black cardamom, which has a deep strong flavour and is used in stronger curries.

Chives

Chives and chive plant kits
Chives are similar to onions and garlic, but with a milder taste. They work well as an alternative to garlic or in salads and cheese-based snacks.

Cinnamon and Cassia

Sweet True Cinnamon & the more Savoury Cassia or "Chinese Cinnamon"
Cinnamon and Cassia are part of the same family. Cinnamon is sweeter and more delicate than cassia and more popular in European cuisine, whereas Cassia is popular in China and India. Both are known as "cinnamon", and hence they are often confused with each other.

Celery Seeds

Tiny Pods of Celery Flavour
Celery Seeds are tiny seeds that do actually taste of celery. They can be stirred into sauces or sprinkled onto things like potatoes, or in fact used in any savoury dish to make it more interesting.

Chillies and Chilli Powder

Coriander

Coriander is used throughout most tropical world cuisine, and is a staple constituent of most curry powders. Because coriander is so important, we sell it in huge bags so you will never run out. We also sell coriander plants, so that you can grow your own.

Cumin

A Pungent Spice - White Cumin & Black Cumin Available
Cumin is a powerful spice that, like coriander, is almost always present in curries. It is available whole or ground, and we supply large economy-sized bags.

Curry Leaves

Dried Leaves that Taste Similar to Curry
These curry leaves taste of curry and are slightly citrus flavoured. They can be added to curries to enhance their flavour, though are not essential.

Curry Powder

Curry powder is incredibly popular, because it's a convenient way of turning almost any meal into a curry. Of course, there is no set formula for curry powder as such: each different brand contains different ingredients in different ratios. We supply a variety of different types, and also large economy-sized bags.

Dill

Aromatic dill leaves
Dill (or dill-weed) is an aromatic thin leaf that is best known for accompanying salmon.

Elderflower

    Turmeric is a bitter root-spice related to ginger, though its flavour is bitter and it is used differently. It imparts a subtle richness to curries, and also gives them a yellowish colour. Turmeric is also considered to be good for the stomach, and has antimicrobial properties that explain its ubiquity in Indian cooking.

    Vanilla Pods

    Vanilla is like nothing else, having a unique flavour all of its own. It is the flavouring used in custard, as well as ice-cream and many desserts and confectionery. Vanilla is incredibly expensive due to its scarcity, but hopefully you will find our prices reasonable.
