Our Locavore Boxes come with almost everything you need to make delicious meals at home. Each week the menu sheet will contain a list of ingredients that you will need to add from your kitchen pantry. These ingredients almost always include dried herbs and spices.
We prefer to buy our spices a little at a time from the bulk jars at our local Co-op. The spices are much cheaper this way and by buying small amounts at a time, we are assured that they are always fresh and full of flavor. We like to store ours in sweet little Weck jars.
Here's a list of dried herbs and spices we typically use in Locavore Meal recipes::
Chile Flake [crushed red pepper]
Smoked Paprika [sweet and/or hot]
....and of course Salt + Pepper!
Next time you are at the store and pass by the bulk spice jars, consider stocking up on these spices so you'll be ready to go when your box arrives.
