Hi, everyone -

If you are like me, your location (north-central Montana, in my case) might prevent you from finding some herbs or spices that you are looking for in order to try any recipes or projects that you might be interested in.

In order to help find a solution for this problem, I've decided to compile a list of a few sources that I've found to be quite helpful in this regard. Going forward, if I can't find any herbs or spices locally (or grow them myself), I plan to order them through the links posted on this thread, as I found that clicking on those links (good) and purchasing through those links (better) helps this forum pay for itself. I'd like to invite other members to do so, as well.

https://www.savoryspiceshop.com/ - this one has been a good, consistent source for herbs and spices for me; they also have a salt-free "Bohemian" herb and spice blend that I really like using.

https://rawspicebar.com/ - This is one that I only recently discovered, but I like their concept and their pricing. The site seems - at first - to be a bit confusing to navigate; in my opinion, the best place to start when looking for a spice or herb is the "Spice Shop" button. It looks like a little jar and is located right underneath the reddish "Get Started" button up in the top-right of the home page.

https://www.riceandspice.de/ - I have not tried this source, which is located in Germany; however, it looks like it might be a great option for our European members, with an impressive inventory of spices that appear - to me - to be quite nice.

https://www.amazon.com/ - If you can't find it anywhere else, you might be able to find it on Amazon.

For Canadian members, there is https://www.amazon.ca/

For European members, there are various links to Amazon, depending on the country:

The United Kingdom - https://www.amazon.co.uk/
Germany - https://www.amazon.de/
Spain - https://www.amazon.es/
France - https://www.amazon.fr/
Italy - https://www.amazon.it/

I hope this helps -

Ron

The links in the opening post help the forum pay for itself. Here are links that - as far as I know - do not help the forum pay for itself. If I find out otherwise, I will move them to the opening post.

https://www.myspicesage.com/ - Good, friendly, efficient service, some nice promotions and a great inventory.

https://www.iherb.com/ - Good, efficient service and fair prices. For quite a while, I got my Hungarian paprika from here, until I found a better source. The selection of herbs and spices doesn't seem quite as good as it used to be, but definitely worth a try.

I ordered some spices today - the first was from the Savory Spice Shop, which I have used before and have always had good experience with.

The second order I placed was from the Raw Spice Bar; it looks like an interesting site with a good concept. You can either set up a "subscription of spices for regular purchase; or, you can simply buy spices and spice blends individually, as one normally would. The spices and spice blends are advertised as being high-quality and sourced around the world; they are freshly toasted (if applicable) and ground to order, and the spice blends are salt-free, unless specified.

From what I can see, all individual products are a flat rate (7.00$ US) and if you order two or more products, you get free shipping. It looks like you can save a dollar per product if you use their "subscription" service, and still receive the free seasoning; however, I can't think of anything that I would order on a regular basis, for now - so, I will simply order them individually.

In addition, orders made through the links on the forum receive a commission to help with forum expenses.

For now, I simply ordered a couple of spice blends; salt-free taco seasoning:

https://rawspicebar.com/products/taco-seasoning

and a Yemeni "Hawaij" spice blend:

https://rawspicebar.com/products/hawaij

We'll see how this goes, but I am optimistic, at this time.
