Nigella (Nigella satvia) is sometimes called charnushka, "black caraway" (for its usage in Jewish rye breads) and "black onion seed," but there is no botanical relation between it and either of these plants. Nigella is a herbaceous annual of the buttercup family. The plant's white flowers with blue veins yield a seed capsule with five compartments each topped by a spike. The compartments open when dried to disperse the seeds.

Nigella is native to Western Asia, the Middle East and Southern Europe. Its seeds are very small, black in color with an oregano-like aroma (when rubbed) and a slightly peppery flavor. Nigella is used extensively in India as a spice and to flavor breads in the Middle East.

It is very versatile and can be used to add an exotic flavor and crunchy texture to almost any vegetable dish. Try it on buttered cabbage, zucchini and sweet potatoes, or rub the seeds into steaks and chicken before grilling.

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.
