In the culinary world, spices refer to the dried part of a plant, other than the leaves, used for seasoning and flavoring a recipe, but not used as the main ingredient.The green leafy parts of plants that are used in this way are considered herbs. Every other part of the plant, including dried bark, roots, berries, seeds, twigs, or anything else that isn’t the green leafy part, is considered a spice e.g. Cinnamon is the bark of a tree. Cardamom is a seedpod. Allspice is a dried berry. Cloves are dried flower buds. Spices are used in a dried form while herbs can be used either fresh or dried. One thing to keep in mind is to buy herbs and spices in small quantities so that they stay fresh. You can also grow your own herbs. However, if you cannot – do the next best thing and buy our organic herbs.
