Spices 101: Fennel

Spices 101: Fennel

We all have the power to turn our everyday food into superfood: just add spice.

Spices have been a hot commodity for thousands of years. Literally. At times, salt has ranked more valuable than gold. Cultures all over the world have turned to dried seeds and roots, cracked, ground, or cooked whole, to preserve their foods, strengthen their reserves, and nourish and heal their bodies.

At Countertop, we use the power of spices like turmeric, cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, black pepper, cloves, and more, to help you cook delicious food with maximum health in minimum time.
