In an effort to cut down on plastic, we have begun buying our spices in bulk. Frontier Natural has 16 oz / 453 g bulk bags of spices – we have been buying the organic spices and they are such amazing quality. One thing to remember though is that 16 oz / 453 g of garlic powder is just a few cups – while 16 oz / 453 g of basil or leafy items is more than a liter. You will of course then need something to store these in, as they come in a foil pack. It is best to store in airtight glass containers and keep them in a cool dark place.
Here are the top spices that I have been using. There are many, many other spices. For me this is the most cost and waste effective way to purchase spices of high quality. However, check around your local stores (especially the international / import stores) – you might have a bulk spice jackpot! I have heard of places that even allow you to bring your own containers – does not get more efficient than that!
