Fresh vs Dried: A Guide to Herbs and Spices

from foodrevolution.org

Summary

Cooking with the right herbs and spices can turn ordinary meals into culinary superstars. And not only are many herbs and spices delicious and aromatic, but they’re among the healthiest foods science has ever encountered. You can buy many dried herbs and spices pretty much anywhere, but have you ever tried growing your own, or getting fresh ones and drying them yourself?

One of the most challenging things about eating health-promoting food is that unhealthy processed food is engineered to be especially flavorful. Packed with excess salt, sugar, artificial additives, and unhealthy and often unnatural fats, these hyper-palatable, manufactured food products can overwhelm our taste buds and make fresh, healthy meals seem pallid by comparison.

Fortunately, we don’t have to choose between tasty and healthy. As long-time Food Revolution Network readers know, food can be both nutritious and delicious. We also have a powerful ally in our efforts to pump up the yumminess, mouthwatering aroma, and visual appeal of our meals — herbs and spices.

This isn’t exactly news — every culture around the world has its own unique spice blends, mixes, or associated culinary herbs. Think Herbs de Provence in France, or the staggering variety of Indian masalas and curries, or Ethiopian berbere (which means “hot” in Amharic). Pick a country or region, and you’ll find a distinctive flavor profile that comes from local herbs and spices.
