Spices

Wolf picked up this awesome Indian recipe book a couple months back. Every recipe we’ve tried has been *fantastic*! There is, however, on small problem: access to Indian spices. A lot of times we have to skip a key ingredient because access to said spice is nonexistant here in central NH. It’s the same with African spices (we have a great African recipe book too).

I googled around and found this website. I’d like to do some spice ordering but I want to make sure the spices (and herbs) are non-GMO and ethically harvested and traded. Does anyone know where I can find an online market which meets those needs?

    What kinds of spices are you looking for? For example fennugreek seeds and powder can be found at an Islamic store but if looking for berebere (a traditional Ethiopian spice) – that is actually a blend of 17 pretty commonly used spices one can get at most grocery stores. I have a great recipe.

    I don’t know about ordering many things online as we have many Islamic markets and African food stores in our city. My new guy introduced me to all of this. I finally dumped Vernons butt after years of “not going anywhere”. :)

    Sorry I couldn’t help more. . .but perhaps either the lady who owns Gamil’s in Concord or the Islamic Society of Greater Manchester can help. Phone numbers: Gamils: 225-5600 ISGM: 644-0939

    Good luck and let me know if you need help identifying stuff!

    Annette: I shall.

    Chan: good to see you back! I hadn’t thought to call Gamil’s or ISGM. Great ideas!

    Coming back anytime soon?
