What are spices?
Spices are the buds, bark, roots, berries and aromatic seeds that are harvested for use in flavoring cooking. Herbs are the leaves of plants, so when we use coriander leaf we refer to it as a herb, however when we use coriander seed we say we are using a spice. Even the tiny filaments of saffron are referred to as a spice. Saffron is the stigma which is hand plucked from a small mauve crocus native to Kashmir.

Typical examples of spices are cloves (buds), cinnamon (bark), turmeric (root), peppercorns (berries), vanilla (the bean from a tropical orchid vine) and cumin, coriander, dill and fennel (seeds) to mention just a few.

Where do spices come from?
Most spices are grown in the tropical regions of the world, with some thriving in the cool misty highlands. Many of the seed spices come from more temperate areas, such as coriander seed, which is grown in Northern India, Africa and the wheat producing areas of South Australia and Western New South Wales.

What gives spices their flavor?
Through spices, nature provides an incredible variety of colors, textures, aromas and flavors that add interest and depth to our meals. The many and varied flavors in spices are held in the volatile oils that naturally occur in spices. Some of these flavors are apparent in the fresh spice, for example in ginger. Other spices either change or only develop their true flavor on drying. One dramatic example is vanilla, a green tasteless bean that grows on a tropical climbing orchid. It is only after drying and curing that the enzyme reactions which take place actually form the vanilla flavor. In a similar manner, when peppercorns are picked green, the enzyme reaction that occurs upon drying turns them black and creates the pepper flavor we all know so well.
