Q | What are the best-selling spices?
A | Our best selling spices are Sazon, Za’atar, and Port-smoked peppercorns, hands down!
Q | What are the best mixes of your spices (that aren’t already packaged together)?
A | Paprika and cumin; citrus adobo and oregano; and any of the smoked peppercorns with Freedom Ridge salt.
Q | What  are the most exotic spices you offer at your shop?
A | Infused sea salts, Jamaican curry, Harissa (you can make your own paste, just ask how!), and Grains of Paradise. Some fun facts about Grains of Paradise: it is similar to peppercorns, but related more closely to cardamom. It is also referred to as “alligator pepper!”
Q | What’s an easy and delicious recipe that someone can make with your spices?
A | Mix citrus adobo and mexican oregano and rub it on chicken before grilling. That’s it, you can’t go wrong! This is one of my favorites.
