Spices - Austin area
« on: March 21, 2011, 08:58:36 PM »
All kinds of good spices, dirt cheap. Today I got:

1oz of habanero powder.
1/2oz of Aleppo pepper flakes.
1oz of smoked Spanish hot paprika powder.
1/2oz of mild green New Mexico green chili powder.
2oz of crushed brown mustard seeds.
2oz of tomato powder
2oz of bleu cheese powder
5oz of Himalayan pink sea salt
1oz of Cantanzaro mix (garlic, lemon peel, majora, thyme, rosemary and oregano) for pizza sauce.

(basically 9 normal spice-bottle quantities)

For 28 bucks.

I have been looking for the powdered habanero for a couple of months locally, and met the owner at a party Saturday night. She is a neighbor, in fact.

It is nice nice little shop on West 6th, visit if you can, and they are online if you can't.

Cool you found Habanero dried as I have to make my own by dehydrating them and then grinding. I have to do the grinding outside my room >:D It's my go to hot chili. And I do mean hot. I use the powder to make my kimchee. My Mexican friends like the powder and ketchup on my pizza. Makes my wonder if there could be a market locally for it. Great find all around ;D

I tried making my own, but did the quick route via microwave.  Note to self:  Habaneros wrapped in paper towels catch on fire when microwaved, and the smoke is painful (at least I did it at work and not at home).

LMAO, I remember vividly the first time I attempted to grind them into powder in my tiny kitchen, I couldn't go into my studio room for a couple of hours even with a ceiling and floor fan going full blast after I realized what a bone headed stunt I had just pulled my eyes burned so bad. Live and learn. Live and learn.

yeah... as bad as mustard gas...

Thanks for the link. I'll definitely check them out. I've been buying my bulk spices from the "gourmet" bulk food section of HEB. It'll be nice to check out a local place with REAL selection and quality stuff.
