Using Your Spice Blends

Quickly toasting or lightly heating your spice blend just prior to using helps extract and bring out the flavors. Two good ways to do this: 1) Quickly heat them in a dry, hot non-stick pan, 2) To the hot non-stick pan, add 1 teaspoon of oil and saute the spices for about 1 minute before incorporating them into your recipe.

Store your spices tightly sealed in a cool, dry location. Buy in small quantities and use within a couple of months, since flavors fade over time.
