Herbs spices are the most important secrets of tasty food. The level of taste and scent of any food is immensely dependant on them. Without them, your hard work in cooking food will fail and it may become tasteless. Before you buy them, you should be quite clear about your requirements. The freshness and essence of these herbs and spices are the best indicators of their quality. Wilted, stale, molded spices do not add any taste to your food and even can make you ill. Check and find if they are stained or not..

It is difficult to evaluate dried herbs and spices as they are found in packed containers. Thus, they should be always bought from a reputed shop as these herbs and spices are more expensive than the ordinary spices. As they are sold less, their expiry date should be verified. If the container does not seem clean, rather dusty to you, never take that packet. The best thing to do is to buy whole herbs and spices. Then with the help of a mixer-grinder make their paste or dust as you need..

After being detached from the plants, the freshness of the herbs and spices are short-lived. To increase the longevity you can perform two things. Place them in the refrigerator in an air-tight container or wrap up them in moist cloth. Ordinary spices like ginger, garlic can be kept for very long at room temperatures with minimal care. You can prepare ice cubes of basil and parsley to store it for a very long time.

The best herbs and spices will take care about the flavor and smell of your cooked food. You can also live a healthy life.
