Dessert Spices 

 

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.

Green Cardamom

Green cardamom is used to add a subtle, perfumey flavour to many desserts, including the famous Indian Kulfi dessert.

Cinnamon

This sweet cinnamon is used to flavour cakes and drinks. We provide the ground form, as well as delicate cinnamon quills for adding to mulled wine.
 

Cloves

Cloves are used in sweets, mincemeats and mulled wine, and are also used to make pomanders and incense.

Ginger

Ginger and galangal are quite similar. We supply ginger in paste form, as well as powder and dried galangal. Ginger is known for its calming effect on the digestion, as well as its pleasant heat.

Juniper Berries

Juniper berries are quite pleasantly fragrant. They are used as a flavouring in gin, and have a flowery spicy flavour. Juniper can be used to spice meats, particulary strong dark meats such as venison or beef.
 

Liquorice Root

Surprising natural sweetness which is well suited to flavouring sauces for game and darker meats. More commonly known for its use in sweets, liquorice root lends a sweet aftertaste to herbal infusions.

Mixed Spice

Mixed Spice is generally used to flavour cakes and biscuits. It contains cinnamon, ginger, cloves and nutmeg.

Nutmeg

Nutmeg is generally used in sweet drinks such as egg-nog and mulled wine. It is generally grated over the drink to be flavoured. Nutmeg is also good in certain cakes and desserts.
 

Saffron (Spanish)

Saffron provides an intense colour and flavour to various savoury dishes as well as cakes, breads and buns. Just a small amount of these tiny crocus threads is used to great effect in famous fish and meat dishes such as Paella.

Star Anise

Star Anise is similar in flavour to aniseed, and is commonly used in Chinese cooking, as well as in India. It can be crushed or used whole, and is a very strong spice with many medicinal uses. Star anise is also used in mulled wine, and does have a slightly more "Christmassy" flavour than normal aniseed.

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.
