    Did you know?

    Did you know many commercial brands sneak unwelcome ingredients into their spices? Plant husks, cheaper seeds and other fillers are sometimes used to bulk up a spice, while industrial dyes and chromate may be added to amplify the colour.

    Geography.

    Sourced in Egypt.

    Hot tip.

    Basil and tomatoes are a love affair of the ages. Pair this perfect combo with feta and red onion for a nutritious, no-mess salad.
