Works for me Wednesdays: Penzey's Spices

Not only do I love to cook and bake, I love anything having to do with the kitchen. Appliances, pots and pans, gadgets, even decor. You name it, if it's for a kitchen it's very likely that I already have one or covet whatever it is. I'm a kitchen slut, my friend Nina says.

One thing I've had some trouble with recently is spice mixes like curry base or chili, or even masala without any salt. I can't use salt, but I love spices and I like them especially fresh, packed in aluminum containers, and with really good strong flavor.

I use Penzey's spices because they offer all that and more. They have stores that you can shop in, where they will let you taste all the spices, give you recipe suggestions and even printed recipes, and best of all, they have salt-free spice blends. Blends that are authentic, fresh and fragrant, and taste absolutely perfect:

If there isn't a store nearby, use their web site to order your next batch of spices. Once you taste their offerings, you won't go back to supermarket spices in little clear glass bottles that could possibly be on the grocery shelf for years. Penzey's sells their spices in brown glass bottles that keep their spices fresher longer. You gotta try them!

I love Penzey's spices! I swear by their salt-free blends, too. I started using them when my trainer encouraged me to eliminate as much salt as possible from my diet, but I continue to use them because they're so good! I especially love the Adobo seasoning, their chili powders, and their pumpkin pie spice, which I've used on my oatmeal every morning for years!

By the way, you should check your link on Rocks in my Dryer; it didn't work when I tried to click through directly. You may want to repost.

We have a Penzey's in town. I haven't tried them out yet because they're out near the mall and I really, really don't like the mall.

Pensey's is based here in Wisconsin. I discovered them when I moved here and have been in love ever since. They have had to move locations twice just since I discovered them in 2000 because they are growing so fast! I love the recipes that people send in (they are printed in the catalog).

Thanks! I didn't know there were other salt free good spices other than Mrs. Dash out there - we've recently cut all salt out of my husband's diet and these sound DELICIOUS!
