Cooking with Seeds: Whole & Ground Spices for Cooking
Shop at Marshalls Creek Spices for the best selection of spices for cooking online. Matched with our nearly wholesale prices, these high quality cooking seeds are the perfect solution for taking a dish to the next level. Whole seeds and ground seeds interact with foods differently and serve different functions in cooking; therefore, we strive to provide you with both whole and ground options of your favorite spices for cooking. Typically, cooks utilize the ground form of a seed when cooking; however, many like to buy or keep in stock whole varieties of the cooking seeds because raw, whole seeds stay fresh and maintain their flavor longer than ground spices.
Anise Seed & Star of Anise or Anise Star – Powerful Cooking Spices
Both anise seed and star of anise have similar flavors, both often compared to fennel seed. Though similar in name and somewhat in flavor, the two spices for cooking should not be confused or interchanged. Anise seed produces a very liquorice-like and sweet flavor and only a few seeds are needed to markedly affect the flavor of a dish, most commonly used in pizza sauces and Italian cuisine. On the other hand, star anise, or star anise, is generally used in Chinese cuisine.
Ground & Whole Mustard Seed
As early as centuries ago, civilizations have been cooking with mustard seeds. The powerful flavors of mustard are enjoyed in many dishes like potato salad and pickled or even Indian-inspired cuisine and salad dressing. Buy black or yellow, ground or whole mustard seed online to add some pungency to your dishes!
Ground & Whole Flax Seed
As of recently, whole flax seed is becoming more popular as a healthy addition to many meals because they boast many nutrients but are extremely low-carb. Whole flax seed stays fresh better and longer than ground flax seed and can be easily ground by a spice – or even coffee – grinder. Incorporate flax seed into baked goods, like bread, pancakes, bars and cookies; use flax seed in health conscious meals like smoothies, yogurt or salad. Get creative cooking with flax seeds, a somewhat nutty tasting seed.
