Perhaps a stickied thread with a basic spice bible? Something that just outlines the basic uses and flavor profiles?

growing, drying, processing etc

uses for:what goes with what. standard as well as unusual: ie. cinnamon goes well with apples and in baking, but also in tomato sauce for a Greek or eastern mediterainian touch. etc

recipes for such staples as pesto, dill sauce, herb marinades and what they work with etc.

I think it will be a fine addition to the board, and sure there will be cross referencing.

Where do you see this stickie going? That's not a bad idea.

It could certainly still be an open discussion thread.

I think that there should be a thread about where all of the herbs and spices come from
Like a grown up geography lesson and then some knowledge of how to use them
I worked for a large organic herb and spice company and every day it was something new coming in the frieght door, which made my day interesting as I got to cook with all of them

I would say if you just happened to have a very good recipe you want to share, it shoud go in the poultry forum. If someone was asking about the uses for tarragon and wondered if it would work with chicken, you could post it in the new forum.

There are many questions on this site that could appropriately fit into more than one forum.

Or one could post in the chicken forum with a LINK in the Herb and Spice forum to it Now THAT would be the perfect answer!!

Good question. Whenever I see a post asking about a specific food, I answer it and if I have a recipe regarding the food, I post it in the forum in which the question was asked and...also in the category in which the recipe would be found. This way it makes it easier for folks who are "searching" for this particular food/recipe can find it more readily using our search program. Just my way of doing things. Not everyone is in the habit of doing things this way.

Just as a header kind of thing, like the community announcements.

A kind of "everything you need to know but were afraid to ask" thingy. Just a basic run down, and of course, keep the forum an open topic/conversation forum.
