How to Toast and Grind

Dry toasting and grinding spices is the key to getting the most flavour out of your ingredients and into your home cooking...

Step 1: Add your whole spices to a dry pan over a low to medium heat and whilst stirring or shaking the pan, lightly toast them for a few minutes. When you can really smell the aromas and they start to darken, they're ready.

Step 2: Let them cool and then grind.

Step 3: For a finer blend, put them through a sieve before combining with any ground ingredients and herbs.
