Yesterday after my Cat Scan appointment at Emory, we drove over to Your Dekalb Farmer’s Market to have lunch and do a little shopping. I love YDFM for many reasons, but the herb, spice, and seasonings wall has to be the top one.
I love that they sell their herbs and spices by the pound. They are packaged in these deli cups, and are really cheap as far as spices and herbs go. I bought 1o different herbs and spices and my bill was $13.87, a lot less than I would pay at any of the local grocery chains. Take a look at my list:
- Ground Ginger $1.28 for .32 lb
- Cumin .96 for .24 lb
- Gumbo File 2.74 for .29 lb
- Ground Mustard .70 for .23 lb
- Mango Powder 1.14 for .28 lb
- Oregano .66 for .15 lb
- Cinnamon 1.33 for .45 lb
- Sage 1.13 for .29 lb
- Pumpkin Pie 2.58 for .43 lb
- Golden Flax Seed 1.38 for .63 lb
I love ginger in stir fried dishes. It just makes it taste better. At this price, I can use it every day, if I wanted to.
That is almost a half a pound of cinnamon. It’s not as good as Saigon Cinnamon, but it will work for most dishes. Where I want a more flavorfull cinnamon taste, I’ll stiff use the Saigon, but this is good for everyday.
I bought the powdered mango because I have never seen it before, or even heard of it. I am one of those people who love to try new things. So, I will be looking for recipes for using Mango Powder. If you know of any, please leave a link in the comments for me to check it out. Have you ever heard of Powdered Mango?
