Emergency Preparedness – Add A Little Spice to Your Life
Nothing has had a more profound effect on the world of commerce and history than mans quest for good taste. Salt, pepper, and spices have been the driving force behind conquests and discoveries from the earliest times. The Egyptians, Phoenicians, European Imperialists, etc., all began, searching for spice routes. Even Columbus was sailing to find a new westerly route to the Far East spice sources when he discovered America.
“We eat what we eat because we like it,’ and spices make the meal. Next time you buy them, think quantity. Large containers are a far better buy per ounce than the small ones.
As dehydrated foods most spices have an indefinite shelf life. Salt, of course, is a preservative with lasting power if stored cool, dark and dry. Pepper, interestingly enough, is not digestible, and has no food value whatsoever. However, as whole pepper corns, it stores well and is liked so much that we are willing to pay the most for it. Everyone knows that at fine restaurants the size of the expected tip is directly proportional to the length of the pepper grinder.
With enough spices, anything can be made to taste better . . . escargot has proven that.
