The Spice of Life

While on the aforementioned 2008 Tool Time Girl Retreat we visited an open air market in the St. Augustine Outdoor Amphitheater last Saturday morning. I stopped at a booth selling spices and discovered a treasure. A Palm Coast based business called Simple Specialties was represented by some very friendly and informative people. I had a great conversation about getting creative with low-sodium cooking and bought a bottle of dried vegetables (made a tasty dip when we got back to the condo) and some dill weed. They have good quality herbs and spices at very reasonable prices. What a find! Their website is nothing fancy and you can't order online just yet but you can download an order form to mail or fax. I'm making a shrimp & pasta salad right now and will use both of my purchases to spice it up and add great flavor. Check them out, they have a great selection so you can get funky (in a creative sort of way) in the kitchen and spice things up!
