Penzys Update

OK I got my first order from Penzys Spices and boy was I thrilled. I used the fajita seasoning last night. I have never made fajitas before, but I will be doing this again real soon. I used a little more seasoning than they recommended and I think I will use even more next time, but the flavor was great. I cannot wait to try the other things I got from them.

Based on what I've received so far, I can't imagine buying off the supermarket shelves again. They have everything you could want and more, plus it's fresh and it's reasonably priced.

Do they have fenugreek seeds (main flavor behind store-bought curry) or ground sandalwood?

They have fenugreek, but I do not see ground sandalwood. I might not be looking in the right spot though.

I just received the catalogue today. What are your favorites? I have not had time to go through it, but will over the next few days. It is as big as my Martha Stewart and Gourmet magazines.

:roll: GO DUCKS = GET ARIZONA STATE :twisted:

You can download the catalog here:
http://www.penzeys.com/images/F04.pdf

To display such a PDF file, you need a free Adobe Acrobat Reader which you can download from here:

Of course, they have fenugreek, it is not rare.

If I wanted a sandalwood flavor, I would use sandalwood oil which is widely available elsewhere.

It may interested you to know that Penzeys has mahlab seeds which is used in some Mideastern pastries and somewhat difficult to find in the USA, at least, in non-Arab stores.

thanks so much for posting this! I was trying to remember the 'name of that spice place' the other day! I will certainly visit and request a catalog from them.
BTW - I'm a newbie, good to be here, have been lurking and this seems like a pretty active nice place to visit.

JRsTXDeb, be careful, you may start to live here, not just visit, like a lot of us! It's great to have you here!

BTW, I'm waiting on my catalog & I downloaded it too.
