I'm thinking of spending a bit of cash to get my cupboard up to scratch with the most often used herbs and spices - something like the Jamie Oliver cupboard essentials type thing:http://www.jamieoliver.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=26480
I want to be able to look at a recipe and think, 'I've got most of that, just need the fresh stuff'
I have a £5 off £25 at M&S and was wondering if it's worth spending a bit more there, with my voucher, or whether it's all a bit of a con and Sainsburys own brand would be just as good? Or even, especially when it comes to Indian food, buying the spices in that section as you get 3 times the amount for the same price?
Any thought would be appreciated.....
P.S Also whilst I'm on the subject was thinking it would be best to keep them in airtight jars and it seems the cheapest way of doing this is by buying the cheapest jam since Moses and then binning it all - but I don't really want to do that. Any suggestions?
