I love spices – and I grow a lot of my own. I can’t grow everything though so when I heard about RawSpiceBar I wanted to give the program a try. I am always on the hunt for unusual spices and new recipes. This program sounded like a great fit for me. Once a month they send 3 to 4 unique spice blends from a new region along with recipes to their subscribers. You get cooking tips, techniques – everything you need to create authentic global dishes at home!
I received the January package. They worked with Chef Freddie Bitsoie from Albuquerque, New Mexico. Chef Freddie Bitsoie is redefining Native American cuisine. The recipes they sent were Navajo Posole, Sumac Flatbreads and Juniper Apples. I received 4 spice blends – RawSpiceBar’s Sumac & Herbs Pouch, RawSpiceBar’s Juniper Berries Blend, RawSpiceBar’s Ground Chilies and RasSpiceBar’s Posole Spices.
As soon as I started to open the spices I could smell the freshness. Anyone who has ground their own herbs and spices can quickly tell if what the spices they are using are fresh or not. These were very fresh. I loved the flavors – and even used some of the ground chiles and posole spices on pork chops. They were delicious.
Right now a 3 month subscription is only $18. That is a great deal as far as I am concerned. This makes a great gift item too! Anyone who loves to cook, loves experimenting with new spices or recipes or just has an interest in trying new foods from different locations in the convenience of their own home should check out RawSpiceBar!
