Buying New Spices

valerie | Dec 3, 2003 02:41 PM

I've finally decided to get rid of everything in my spice cabinet and get all new spices. (I think that some of the spices have been in there for like 10 years!)

Anyway, I'm going to order from Penzey's. In addition to the basics, I'd like to order some of their "blends". Does anyone have any favorite blends?

Also, I'm not sure what size packages I should buy. Many of them seem to come in a little over 1 oz. plastic containers, a little over 2 oz. glass jars, or 4 oz bags. I cook a moderate amount, but I have no concept of how much of these spices I will use over the next year. I don't want to overdo it (and have old spices around for the next 10 years!), but 1 oz. seems like so little.

Any insight would be much appreciated! Thanks!
