Cooking With Herbs & Spices

 The American Spice Trade Association has prepared this handy chart to acquaint you with a variety of spices and their uses. Until familiar with a spice, it’s best to start with 1/4 teaspoon (less for the red pepper spices) to a pint of sauce, soup or vegetable, or to a pound of meat, fish or fowl.
