I'm trying to make my own soups. I can cook OK (just have been lazy and not cooked properly in years) and have no herbs or seasoning (unless you count salt and pepper).
I don't have a lot of space, my flat is tiny and I have about half a shelf to devote to any herbs I get which is about a 20cm squared space at best. I can't really bulk buy much because I don't have the space! I'll mainly be making soups, I need a basic variety of herbs; basic, coriander...etc etc (no clear idea really, just all the basic herbs).
There has to be a cheaper way than going to Tesco/Sainsburys...etc and paying £1+ a jar....
I also want to get hold of decent stuff- I've had pepper for example from at least 2 major supermarkets that doesn't taste of anything, just looks like black dots-and no it wasn't the value pepper it was the supermarkets own line.
I'm not trying to be fussy, just don't have much cash to spend and don't want to waste it on something which tastes of nothing.
I'm in London if it's any help.
Any cooks out there who can help/advise?
