March RawSpiceBar - Persian Spice
Contents of the RawSpiceBar envelope:
.3 oz. packet Advieh Khoresht.
.3 oz. packet Mast-O-Khiar Herbs.
.003 oz. packet Saffron Threads.
Last month I looked up these spices on a website where I regular purchase spices from. Matter of fact I they have a store in Napa and when I was there last week I stocked up on some things. This month I decided not to put a value #1 because I've never even heard of two of these spices and #2 it's not accurate. The value would definitely be less than $6 if you could find and purchase these spices in bulk. This workouts out to be $2 a packet which is less than you would paying buying full jars. RawSpiceBar also includes recipes using the spices which is awesome because again I have no idea what two of these spices even are. The other spice, saffron, I know and love.
These spices are used in Tehran, Iran and were chosen in celebration of Nowruz, the Persian New Year. The recipes are:
Braised Lamb Shanks with Advieh
Mast-O-Khiar with Rose & Mint
Sabzi Polow with Dill & Saffron
I'm not a fan of lamb but I think I might try it with with pork shanks.
Verdict: I think this is a great subscription and I'm excited to try these new spices.
