Go German!

Maybe you should start a new thread to pose that question to the community

So, the last time that DH and I went to Southern Arizona, I did not get a chance to go to the Penzey Store, which I had planned on doing.
This next trip though, I have insisted to DH that I MUST GO!

Here's my list, but I feel that there is a couple of other blends that some of you have used in the Daily Dinner thread that are not here:

Arizona Dreaming
BBQ3000
Green Goddess Dressing mix
Bangkok Blend
Fox Point
Mural of Flavor

Please help ??!!

It's not just the blends. Some of my staple favorites are onion powder, roasted garlic powder, ground black pepper, Mexican oregano, ancho chile powder. I would think ahead to fall and holiday baking - cocoa powder, cinnamon (they have several kinds), ginger and Pie Spice. Chinese Five-Spice and Zaa'tar are good.

I also have ground and whole cumin and coriander seeds.

I grow my own herbs, so I don't buy dried herbs.

Now, don't feel like you need to get everything at once Have a good look around the store, sniff the jars, and make notes. Once you're on the mailing list, you start getting coupons for discounts and they almost always have a free sample or two available. I've replaced most of my spices with Penzeys over years.

Btw, I don't buy their peppercorns or vanilla extract. I make my own extract and get a better buy on peppercorns from Amazon.

Oh, a friend gave me a jar of Trinidadian seasoning - salt, pepper, lemon peel, garlic, ginger and cloves. It's really good on pan-fried fish.

What Penzeys Spices/Herbs I Should Try?

I think Penzey's is running another promo for free ground pepper now. I'd deleted it, looking.

Ah, here we go: http://d31hzlhk6di2h5.cloudfront.net...iversary%20CST
