Herbs - Information and Spice Variations

The Spice House carries a wide range of dried herbs, from the popular basil and oregano to less common herbs, such as lemon thyme, epazote, and savory.

Fresh herbs are great, but they can be expensive, hard to find, and soon wilted. Dried herbs are a wonderful way to add flavor to any dish, with no risk of rotting in your refrigerator. Modern drying techniques are excellent for preserving flavor and color - oregano, thyme, and rosemary especially lose very little in being dried. For most herbs, drying concentrates flavor, so use 1/3 the amount called for when substituting.
