Want to learn more about cardamom? What to know where you can buy curry leaves? Wondering exactly what Berbere is? Want tips on how to cook with peppers? Now there is an app for that!
I hope this will help cooks all around the world learn more about familiar spices and gain knowledge about what new spices they could use.
My super simple app on spices releases today. My hope is that you will add your own tips, recipes, links on where to buy into the app and grow it and make it your own. This is a start. We are going to add a lot more with upcoming versions. But I wanted to create this for all my readers - a simple way to find and buy spices with links on wonderful recipes and youtube videos related to the spice/herb. I did this project on my own without big sponsors, without a budget. It is a start of something very useful. I hope.
Have a spice/seasoning/herb that you love that is not featured? Write to me and I will add it in the next version. Have a recipe with a herb you love .. email me a link and I will add it. Or you can add it yourself in the comments section of each spice.
Are you a nutritionist? Would you like to enter information on the benefits of the spice? Share your expertise with us using the comments section on each spice. Would love to learn from your expertise!
Consider this: When the super talented folks at Leite's Culinaria saw the application, they decided they would add links to their own recipes to several spices/herbs in this tiny app. So in the next version, we will be linking to over 100 recipes from Leite's Culinaria!! I also heard from a national magazine whose staff will also add recipe links in the next version! I am over the MOON.
I hope you will buy it and more importantly add to it - your recipe links, photos, your experiences with the spice. This is a project that will grow with its users adding more information. So come one, download, click and go iSPICE!!
