Which brand of spices do you use?

I buy all my spices from Spice House online. I find the quality and the price much better than the grocery stores and much fresher too.

  1. Common stuff is supermarket own label. Asian spices usually bought from small local asian grocers - label is usually either Natco or East End. Chinese, etc, spices bought from Chinatown - labels vary. Anything else is bought online from Seasoned Pioneers

    1. I predominately buy from Penzeys, but I occasionally buy whole spices from local ethnic markets and the occasional jar of Spice Islands.

        We buy them from the bulk department at a local Co-op. Good quality and reasonable price.

          Thanks lgss for the link! I've been buying Frontier at my co-op for years, but never thought about looking up some company info. Very impressive cred, IMO.

          And, yes - high quality and good prices. Always my first source for spices.


        2. Been ordering from Penzey's for a few years, and now they have a store just a few miles from my home.
