Mountain Mama’s Gritty Herb Mix

Mortar & Pestle

Mortar & Pestle

There is no better way to add flavor to a dish than by fresh herbs and spices or freshly ground herbs and spices.

Over the next few months I will post my favorite herb and spice combinations–some subtle, some spicy, some hot but all are made from combinations of whole seeds, peppercorns, flakes, dried peels and leaves.

For a spicy combo try High5′s Mountain Mama’s Gritty Herb Mix. Combine the following and store in a jar. When ready to use pulverize whole spices and herbs by hand using a mortar and pestle or grind in pepper grinder.
