What are Spices?
A spice is a seed, berry, bark, or root used primarily for flavouring or colouring food. Herbs, however, are leaves, flowers, or stems of plants used for flavouring or as garnishes. In addition for cooking, spices are sometimes used in religious rituals, medicine, cosmetics or perfume
Some of the most popular spices, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and ginger are native to the Asian tropics. Some of the aromatic seed spices, coriander, fennel, fenugreek, mustard, are native to the Mediterranean region. Vanilla beans are grown in Madagascar, Mexico, and Tahiti. Saffron is believed to have been first cultivated in Greece, but today most of the saffron we eat is grown in Iran, Greece, Morocco, Spain and India.
