Because I have a rule that Julie Hasson must be mentioned on my blog at least once every other week, I should get it out of the way that I've wanted to visit Penzey's Spices since she mentioned it recently. (sorry about the big picture of the ham! warning!)
Fortunately, I had an opportunity to go with my friends last weekend via vehicle since it's not quite in Portland itself, and joined in on the spice party.
I usually buy my spices in bulk (Limbo, People's Coop, New Season's) and it was a fun change to buy in jars and bags.
I spent approximately $15, and walked out with the folllowing:
- whole Nutmeg
- Indian 'Very Hot' Crushed Red Pepper
- Indonesian Korintje Cassia Cinnamon
- Indonesian White Pepper
- and Jerk Chicken & Fish Spice (for my sister)
There were 4 different types of freaking cinnamon! I have Vietnamese Cinnamon at home already and happily picked up the Indonesian after smelling them all.
Jealous? You can easily purchase online or go to the store nearest you!
