Ajowan (Ajowain) Seed - DISCONTINUEDs

Ajowan is a member of the same family as dill, caraway and cumin. The seeds are used as a spice primarily in Indian cooking, where it is also known as bishop's weed, lovage, ajwain and carom. Ajowan is typically used to season vegetarian dishes, breads, curries and fish.

Ajowan is usually ground in a mortar and pestle, or crushed by rubbing between the hands or fingertips before using. When used whole, it is best to lightly bruise the seeds first, to release the volatile oils, which increases the flavor. Ajowan seeds can be stored indefinitely if kept from light in airtight containers. Like many Indian spices, Ajowan is believed to have medicinal properties.

Why Buy Your Spices at Silver Cloud Estates?

Why buy spices online when they are so readily available at your local store.  The answer is quality and price.  The spices sold at your local store are often a year or two old.  As spices age, they loose much of their flavor.  Silver Cloud's spices are always fresh, never old.  Our products are also an excellent value.   When you need spices," click" on Silver Cloud Estates for the freshest products at great prices.

Vanilla bean and extract prices have increased significantly this year. This is due to a smaller than expected crop in Madagascar last year. This was aggravated by early picking and the vacuum packing of uncured beans. While short term the news is not good, the 2016 flowering was excellent and we anticipate a good harvest. This may lead to some price softening, but with the strong demand for vanilla we have seen it is hard to say how much relief we will see. We will know more later this year as new crop, cured beans become available. Best case we do not anticipate any significant reduction in price before the end of the 1st quarter of 2017.
