spice season.

October 16, 2012

spices It’s the time of year for mulling spices. If you don’t have them in your cupboard today, you might decide to get them there tomorrow.

Cinnamon and cardamom, dried orange peel and allspice, star anise and cloves.

The whole versions are best, but powders will do in a pinch. Wink.

Spices for gift giving, here. And my thoughts on autumn smells over at the Equals Record.

    Cardamom! I have spice bottle of it, but I'm actually not entirely sure what to use it for.

    star anise has a wonderful smell and flavoring! These all must smell lovely in the apartment, maybe a little bit of this will make life in Florida a bit more "autumn"
