Christmas Spice

My friend went to Grenada on holiday and brought me back some very special gifts:
• Nutmeg
• Cinnamon
• Cloves

Spices fresh from Grenada

It was such a delight to see spices in their natural state and not packaged in a jar or wrapped in plastic. The shapes, the textures and the colours are wonderful; and as for the aroma…The combination of cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg, just smell like Christmas to me. They remind me of my own mother, baking Christmas fruit cakes or preparing some ham for Boxing Day munchies, of mulled wine or home made ginger beer. Every time I open the cupboard in the Delights Kitchen, I get a waft of these pleasant flavours. I can’t wait to get cooking and baking throughout my favourite season.
