Spice up your Cooking
I found out this brand McCormick as one of the best in enhancing the taste of food. Since then I've been using its products and the following can be found on my kitchen pantry;
Black Pepper (ground) - add to salad dressings, meat and chicken marinades, vegetable and meat sauces, stews & gravies.
Rosemary - use in all lamb dishes. Crush & add to marinades for meat and poultry, stuffings,broiled fish,potatoes, cauliflower, zucchini, seafoods and breads.
Thyme - combine with butter to serve over vegetables. Add to stuffing, fish chowder, meat loaf, seafood, tomato and cheese dishes.
Tarragon - use in green salads and salad dressings. Add to chicken, veal and fish. Excellent in bernaise and other sauces. Add to eggs, carrots, tomatoes and peas.
Cayenne Pepper (ground) - use in barbecue sauce, seafood sauce, bean dip, tomato juice and omelets. Adds zip to vegetable soup, cheese spreads, deviled crab and lobster.
Turmeric (ground) - use 1/8 tcp. in 1 cup rice for color. Add to water when cooking noodles and potatoes. Use in making pickles, relish and salad dressing.
Garlic (powder) - widely used in a variety of soups, meats, sauces, dressings, vegetables and almost any other dishes requiring its distinctive sharp and pungent flavor. 1/8 teaspoon is equivalent to one garlic clove.
