Steenbergs Organic Basil is the perfect herb for pasta, tomato sauce and chicken and has a dark green colour. The flavour of organic basil is almost addictive and there is little that organic basil cannot improve.
Steenbergs Organic Fenugreek Seeds are the golden-brown – and relatively hard – seeds that come from the slender annual herb, fenugreek or Trigonella foenum-graecum. The aroma of organic fenugreek seeds is spicy and sharp, while the flavour is mildy bitter and like eating peas. Steenbergs fenugreek seeds have a wonderfully pungent aroma and taste, sweet and somewhat bitter, reminiscent of burnt sugar. Use Steenbergs organic fenugreek seed in curries, chutneys and baking, especially of flat breads.
How to use: Ginger is a versatile spice being used either in sweet bakery for cakes and biscuits directly or in mixes like Steenbergs organic mixed spice, while it is also used in savoury foods from Indian and South East Asian curries through to sausages. I like it in making sausages finding it adds a pleasing heat that complements the pork very well.
