Deep & Tangy Spice Blend, 50g/100g
An elegantly spiced aromatic blend with a rich and tangy flavour.
We’ve used cinnamon, coriander, cumin and sweet smoked paprika to create a soft, savoury-sweet base upon which sits the complex flavour of allspice and the aromatic warmth of ginger and black pepper. Fenugreek adds depth, whilst a little anardana - a deliciously sharp, aromatic spice made from sundried pomegranate seeds has a fruity, tangy taste that lifts the warm spices. Urfa chilli has a slightly smoky, raisin-like aroma and taste, and we use its fruity notes here add warmth and depth. A little green cardamom and hyssop give a subtle herbacious note that adds complexity and helps to bring the flavours together.
With its elegant spicing and gorgeously rich and fruity aroma, this blend is wonderful used in tagine-style dishes. Or, emphasise its tangy element by adding a spoonful to mayonnaise (you can even mix through chopped gherkins and fresh parsley for an unusual take on tartar sauce) or why not try it in your bloody Mary!
WHY DON'T WE ADD SUGAR OR SALT TO OUR BLENDS?
The spices we skilfully combine give such a flavour boost on their own, so we don't add salt or sugar to our blends. Some spices have an inherent sweetness - combining these makes delicious, sweet-tasting blends. The one exception to our rule on sugar is our Sugar Spice finishing blend, in which we use small pieces of crystallised ginger for its delicious chewy texture and spicy-sweet flavour. Other spices we utilise for their deeply savoury qualities. Salt is sometimes used whilst processing sumac berries and in curing chillies such as Urfa and Aleppo, and as such, may be present in small quantities in some of our blends. We use red miso powder, which is made with salt, as an ingredient in our Savoury and Rich spice blend.
You may like to add a sprinkle of salt to your food when cooking with our spice blends - we leave the choice up to you!
A NOTE ON STORAGE
Spices are best stored in airtight packaging, away from sunlight and heat. To keep our spice blends as fresh as possible, we pack them into resealable, opaque pouches. Seal after each use and store away from sunny windowsills and sources of heat, such stovetops. If you forget to seal the pouch, the spice blend may begin to lose aroma. Please note that even if you keep our spice blends sealed securely, you may notice some clumping - this is because we do not use the anti-caking additives. Don't worry if this happens - simply give the blend a stir or use your fingertips to break down any small clumps.
