TIPS & RECIPES

SPICE TIPS:

 

~ Store your spices in glass containers. What's cheapest, easiest, and most effective way? Baby food jars. They are wide-mouthed with a rubber seal. And inexpensive! Eat the baby applesauce (or share it), re-label the jar, and that's it.

 

~ Mix your cold JAMAICAN HIBISCUS TEA with soda water for a sparkling summer quencher!

 

~ Stir the seasoned SEA SALTS into olive oil and dip fresh bread for a savory treat.

 

~ Iced Tea Tip: When making a large pitcher of iced tea, boil only a small amount of the water needed, make a concentrated tea and then dilute with water to make a large, refreshing pitcher of Iced Tea in a jiffy.
