Basic Herb and Spice Starter
NC Cooperative Extension Service; Kolasa, Kathryn
There was a need for a patient education handout on affordable herbs and spices to use in preparation of dishes that align with the Mediterranean Style of Eating. Dr. Kolasa invited Catherine Hill and her team at NC State University to build that handout. Five herbs and spices were identified (Italian seasoning, cinnamon, red pepper flakes, chili powder and cumin), and this handout includes tips for buying, storing, and using these, as well as dried parsley, dried dill, garlic powder and onion powder. Tips on zesting citrus for additional flavor are included.
