Spices And Seasonings
Want to prepare delicious foods for yourself and your family? Spices and seasonings can enhance the flavor of recipes, making them even more delicious. Stocking up on the spices and seasonings that you need for your favorite foods doesn't have to mean heading to the grocery store. In this product selection at CVS, you can find a huge assortment of popular and specialty spices and seasonings you can quickly browse and buy online.
At CVS, you'll find popular seasonings many people use daily in their homes. Table salt and black pepper are two commonly used seasonings often required for recipes and can be used after food is prepared to enhance its flavor. As its name suggests, table salt adds a salty taste to foods. Ground black pepper enhances the spiciness of dishes. Both salt and pepper are typically used in ground form. You can purchase these seasonings already ground or in whole form. Whole salt and pepper often comes in grinder bottles for easy dispensing.
Spices are used to add a new taste to foods, and there are many different types available. Some spices like ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon are used in both baking and cooking recipes. Others like garlic powder and onion powder are typically only for cooking savory foods. Some spices are available in different size packaging, giving you the ability to buy a small amount for one-time use or to stock up on frequently used products.
If you're looking for an easy way to season dishes, try spice blends. A spice blend contains two or more spices that complement one another's flavors. Often, spice blends are made for specific types of recipes or for a particular kind of cuisine. For example, Italian seasonings often contain a mix of basil, oregano, rosemary, and other herbs commonly used as spices in recipes from Italy. You can find spice blends for Mexican dishes, Asian cooking, barbecued meats and poultry, and other popular foods.
Dried spices and seasonings aren't the only way to add new flavor to your foods. You can bring sweetness to dishes with honey or agave nectar or add a tangy touch with lemon or lime juice. Vinegar can bring a sour, bitter kick to foods. Oils can enhance the consistency and overall taste of meals and may be used for cooking or as a condiment.
