'Expensive' spices vs 'cheap' spices

Monica | Feb 14, 2007 05:31 AM

I am sure this topic was discussed before but I need to know if there is a difference between dry spices bought from a gourmet shop and spices bought from a local supermarket for like $.79(or two for dollar when they go on sale).
Insn't herb all the same after all? There is no such thing as high quality expensive fresh least I never noticed although my local gourmet shop charges 99 cents for a bunch of fresh herbs while some high end gourmet shops in Manhattan charges like $2.99 for a bunch.
