This is how Germany spices - from paprika to cinnamon

  • Pepper: Very few people know that white, green and black pepper come from the same plant, Piper nigrum. The different colors of the grains are due to the degree of ripeness. Worldwide, 180,000 tons of pepper are harvested. Of this, 2 3. 510 tons go to Germany alone. The Thomas Kitchen pepper mill can grind any grain size thanks to its Crushgrind grinding mechanism. But other herbs are also no problem for the spice mill.
  • Paprika and chili: Chili and paprika can be traced back to the same plant genus, Capsicum. The ingredient capsaicin is also named after it. This is what makes chili so hot. But it also promotes blood circulation and prevents colds. Chili is often found chopped in dishes such as chili con carne. But sweets, such as chocolate, are also refined with the fiery note of the spice.
  • Cinnamon: Did you know that cinnamon is made from tree bark? The cinnamon tree usually grows on plantations and can grow up to 20 meters tall. To produce cinnamon, the outer layers of the bark of the cinnamon tree are removed and left to dry in the sun. The bark rolls up by itself, giving the spice its typical shape. 8795 tons were imported to Germany in 2014.
  • Salt: Strictly speaking, salt is not a spice. Salt is a mineral consisting mainly of sodium chloride. Salt is essential for human survival. Nevertheless, the German Nutrition Society recommends consuming no more than six grams a day. To match the "Plus" salt and pepper mill, the designers Norway Says have created a salt and pepper barrel for Muuto . The barrel brings a Japanese-inspired flair to any dining table.
  • Cardamom: In Germany, cardamom mainly plays a role in Christmas baking. Cardamom is not seasoned with the entire spice pod. The crucial part is the seeds inside the capsules. They contain the essential oils that give the spice its special aroma.

Here's how it works - storing spices correctly

Spices like to be kept dry, cool, airtight and dark. It is therefore advisable to set up a spice rack in a cupboard. If possible, this should not be located above the stove or radiator. Well-sealed and dark containers are suitable for storage. As a rule, unground spices keep longer than ground spices. Spices that have already been processed quickly lose their aroma.
