With all the couponing going on in our house, spices are the one area I’ve found that can be hard to save on and hard to get a good quality spice. Believe me, not all brands are the same, and with spices you can truly “get what you paid for”. I was asked a few weeks ago to do a review of My Spice Sage, an online spice company, with our love for cooking I jumped at the chance.
With store bought cheaper spices, they aren’t bad really. It’s more that they can have preservatives in them and can be old (losing flavor and color). A flavorless spice is basically a useless spice. Honestly most are only good for 6-12 months max. In typing that I’m now thinking of my spice cabinet and I’m pretty sure I have things from before I was married ten years ago… maybe that should tell you why I was so excited to review new spices!!
My Spice Sage offers gourmet individual spices and blended spices at wholesale prices. When I say wholesale prices, I mean it. Right now you get free shipping on any $10 order and a free 1 oz sample with any order!
Here’s some price comparison’s:
McCormick Gourmet Cumin (preservative free), 1 oz, $5.79
My Spice Sage Cumin, 1 oz, $2.75
Morton & Bassett Paprika (preservative & msg free), 2 oz, $6.79
My Spice Sage Hungarian Paprika, 4 oz, $5.25
Seriously that’s huge savings! To get top quality spices for half the price (and actually even cheaper than the cheap store brands) is awesome!
If you need to get a gift for someone who appreciates a good cookout, they have just the thing! My Spice Age has a “Grilling Gems Gift Set” which includes:
Applewood Smoked Sea Salt
Fried Chicken Seasoning
Garlic Pepper Rub
Herbs De Provence
Jamaican Jerk Seasoning
Lemon Pepper Seasoning
Now, if you can’t find a spice in that list that strikes your fancy, I just don’t know how else to help you. It’s making my mouth water just thinking about it! The entire set is 40 ounces of spices for $36.75. Less than $1 an oz!
The Applewood Smoked Sea Salt makes plain chicken breast taste and smell amazing! Saute it in a pan or grill it, you’ve turned a moment of not knowing what to cook into a fancy dinner with one spice.
My Spice Sage offers over 500 spices (like 7 different types of paprika alone). This saves me time from running all over town to grab random Indian spices for one dish. As long as you can plan 3-4 days out on menus your spices will arrive in time for the meal.
If you’re still a little iffy, it doesn’t hurt to try the company out. They’re so convinced that you’ll love what they have to offer that they have a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. You’ll not only get a full refund, but they’ll pay for return shipping – no questions asked.
Sometimes our family likes to make our own spice blends. One that I love in the summer time is Montreal Steak Seasoning:
2 Tbsp Paprika
2 Tbsp Crushed Black Pepper
1 Tbsp Granulated Garlic
1 Tbsp Granulated Onion
1 Tbsp Crushed Coriander
1 Tbsp Dill
1 Tbsp Crushed Red Pepper flakes
If you want some more spice blend ideas, I wrote an entire homemade spice and seasonings post a couple of months ago that can help inspire your kitchen.
