    I have gotten into buying a good number of spices lately. Particularly from the Spice House. In the past I was just a salt, cbp, seasoned pepper and seasoned salt guy with a little garlic salt thrown in here or there.
    The number of fantastic spices to be had is unreal.
    Well, since I started smoking and getting into various rubs etc. more varied spices have found there way into all my cooking.
    So what I have been doing is when I want to make something I search the net for recipes of that particular dish.

    I compare ingredients of about a half dozen of those recipes and find the common denominator spices and use them. Which works fine but it gets time consuming.
    I know for alot of you seasoned (pun intended) vets here combining what spices with what foods is a no brainer. But for some of us less seasoned newbs it can be confusing.
    I found this little basic primer and printed it out.
    Should be a timesaver for me and maybe for others here as well.

    Sometimes going "outside the box" isn't bad either. Jalapeno peanut brittle is awesome :{)

    >>>Sometimes going "outside the box" isn't bad either.<<<

    after my recent jalapeno jelly experience (who would have thought to mix those two concepts?), i must wholeheartedly agree.
