I’m so glad to see that so many of you have enjoyed the Supreme Spice interview. I had hoped that you all would be as excited about it as I. Remember that you have until the end of the day on Wednesday to enter the giveaway on that post.
A couple of you had some questions that I wanted to post about in case others were wondering the same things. I checked with Anjali to make sure I had the answers straight.
1. Jere was curious about how much extract to use in recipes.
Instructions come with each extract. However, there is also a chart on the Supreme Spice website that details the conversion from traditional spices to extracts. I’ve reprinted that information:
Cumin: 1 drop = 1/4 tsp powder
Cardamom: 1 drop = 1 pod
Nutmeg: 12 drops = 1 whole nutmeg
Garlic: 1 drop = 1 clove of garlic
Ginger: 1 drop = 1/4 inch piece
Turmeric: 1-2 drops = 1-2 tsp of powder
Fennel: 2 drops = 1/2 tsp of powder
Clove: 1-2 drops = 1 clove bud
Tandoori Masala: 4-5 drops = 1/4 tsp of powder
Garam Masala: 3-4 drops = 1/2 tsp of powder
2. Deah asked if there are any issues shipping in the heat.
No, these extracts need no refrigeration and can be shipped in the summer weather. They just need to be stored in a cool spot, away from direct sunlight.
