Cooking with Dried Herbs
We have some tips for getting the most out of dry cooking herbs. First, purchase from a high-quality retailer. You want to buy the freshest dried herbs possible. OliveNation is a retailer you can count on for top quality ingredients like herbs, seeds, and spices at reasonable prices. Our online herb store is known for premium service and fast shipping, and the majority of orders will ship within 24 hours of ordering.
Second, when you open a jar, give it a sniff. Does it have an herbaceous smell? Yes – you're good to go. If it doesn't, it's time to get a new jar. Our last tip is that dried herbs should be added while a dish is cooking to get the most flavor. Dried herbs need time to rehydrate in a cooking liquid. If they're added too late, they can add unwanted grittiness to your dish. If a recipe calls for sprinkling an herb, such as parsley, on your dish at the end of cooking, and you're using dried, be sure to rehydrate it before sprinkling on your dish.
Cooking and Baking with Seeds
Recipes often call for whole seeds or freshly ground seeds. Whole seeds can be found in breads, scones, muffins, no-bake energy bars, and salad dressings. Ground seeds are used in many different recipes. For instance, some sausage recipes call for ground fennel seed, and other recipes call for ground mustard seed. If you grind your own seeds, a spice grinder is the best tool for the job.
