I had the pleasure of receiving this wonderful sample box from a company called The Spice Lab. This assortment sample box that I received is a fraction of what they carry on their website.
This is not a subscription box service. This box that I received was something prepared by the company for bloggers to review. They sell many single items and have many other gift options.
The Spice Lab has a wide selection of salts, spices, blends, rubs, seasonings, teas, pantry, mixology and housewares from around the world.
The beautiful gourmet 4-spice sampler contains these sea salts from around the world: Spanish Chorizo (from Spain), Applewood Smoked (from Washington, USA), Cyprus White Flake (from the Island of Cyprus), Himalayan Pink (from Pakistan). This is available in the 4-pack, 6-pack, 7-pack, 11-pack and 12-pack in various combinations. Of course the larger collections will contain more variety of spices and/or salts. Check them all out here!
The two full size spices that I received are Olive Oil Herb Blend and Spicy Burger N’ Steak. Cannot wait to try these. I am always at a loss for what type of spices to put on beef. These will be a great help.
Prices are very reasonable and shipping is free on an order of $50.00 or more in the USA, other shipping rates apply outside the USA so check their website.
Did you know that experts recommend you replace your dried herbs and spices every 1 to 2 years! Lord I have had some for years so I took a look in my spice draw and pitched so many. I’m going to start ordering my new fresh herbs/spices from The Spice Lab.
Here are some tips to keeping your herbs/spices as fresh as possible in between uses.
- Keep herbs and spices away from heat, light, and moisture. Don’t store them by a hot stove or by a window where sunlight, rain, and drafts can get in, but store them somewhere that’s dark with a cool, steady room temperature.
- Keep herbs and spices in dark or opaque containers, as light fades their color. If you really like using glass storage containers (I do), store a small amount in glass, but leave the bulk of your dried seasonings tightly sealed in a dark place.
Don’t know what to get Aunt Mary and Uncle Bill for their anniversary – surprise them with a gift pack of fresh herbs/spices from The Spice Lab and they will be thrilled.
