Spices are no longer confined to the kitchen. The dried parts of aromatic plants -- the seeds, flowers, leaves, bark, and roots -- that are used widely for flavoring and preserving foods, can also be used for cosmetic and medicinal purposes. Cinnamon stimulates the glandular system and relieves indigestion. Sesame oil is used by Mediterranean women to treat dry skin. The Spice Companion is a four-color illustrated guide to the use and appreciation of more than 50 spices and their essential properties. Includes clear, concise information on how to prepare the most popular spice blends, how to store spices so they maintain their full flavor, and recipes for the most widely used spice blends from around the world.
