Grinding spices

scuzzo | | Apr 21, 2008 11:43 AM

I have the urge to try to make some interesting spice blends. I have star anise...is it ok to grind up and use? Use the whole star, or just grind up the seeds.

What about bay leaves? Usually they are cooked whole and discarded. Is it ok to grind up fine and use?

Any fun ideas for spice blends?
