Teeny Tiny Spice Co. Of Vermont Review and Giveaway!

Teeny Tiny Spice Co. of Vermont
 
Do you like to cook or know someone who does?  Well have I got a review for you!  I personally love to cook, and I especially love trying new flavors.  One of the ways to flavor your food is herbs and spices of course.  Other cultures use herbs much more than Americans in their traditional foods.  But other than making your own it's hard to find pre-made spice mixes in your standard grocery stores.
 
tts-thora-ed.jpgThat's why I was so excited when Teeny Tiny Spice Co. Of Vermont offered to let me review two of their spice mixes.  Here is a little info on the company.

Teeny Tiny Spice Company of Vermont, LLC is a family owned and operated business that grew out of our love of cooking and international cuisine. Our challenge was that at the end of a busy day, when we wanted to make something new and interesting, we often found that we did not have the ingredients or the energy to tackle the recipes that caught our eyes. We believe that clean, real food not only provides a delicious meal, it is also a key to health and vitality. So we started creating our own blends to have on hand, making it simple and easy to prepare a tasty, healthy meal quickly with our basic pantry of ingredients. We solved our problem and thought that other people would enjoy what we had created...a business was born. After more than three years in business and many tens of thousands of tins sold, we often marvel at how many meals must be being made with our spice blends every day. We hope that you enjoy them as much as we do.
 
Teeny Tiny Spice Co. Of Vermont let me choose two of their organic spice mixes that are made in the USA to review.  First off it was extremely hard to choose!  There are so many spice mixes that I wanted to try and they all sounded so good!  Many of their spice mixes are very exotic and come from Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. They have a recipe page HERE for ideas on how to use their spice mixes. I finally settled on the Persian Adwiya and the Shepherds Herb Mix

 
 I tried the Shepherds Herb Mix first.  It is a blend of spices that reminds me of Herbs De Provence with a little more Mediterranean flavor added in.  It contains: Lemon Peel, Lavender Flowers, Spearmint, Basil, Sage, Rosemary, Fennel, Black Peppercorn, Parsley, Thyme, Marjoram, Oregano, Himalayan Pink Salt, Onion, and Garlic.
 
I used it as a wet spice rub on a pork roast.  I let it marinade over night and then roasted it in my slow cooker.  The flavor was wonderful and the herbs complimented the pork perfectly!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Next I tried the Persian Adwiya spice mix.  This is a middle eastern spice mix from Iran and contains many floral notes typical to that area. It Contains: Red & Pink Rose Petals, Sweet Cinnamon, Lemon Zest, Cumin, Coriander, Orange Zest, Nutmeg, Cardamom, Black Peppercorn, and Himalayan Pink Salt. 
 
I put it in ground beef and served it on naan which is an Indian flat bread and tzatziki which is cucumber yyoghurt dip from Greece.  So that is quite a mix of national foods but hey it tasted great!  I cant wait to try the Persian Adwiya in rice and on chicken. 
 
In Conclusion:
 
Teeny Tiny Spice Co. Of Vermont gets 5 stars in my book for the following reasons
 
  • Quality Ingredients that are fresh and vibrant
  • Unique and Exotic Spice Mixes
  • Made in the USA
  • Affordable (the same price you would pay in a grocery store for run of the mill spices)
  • Certified USDA Organic
  • Certified Kosher
  • Gluten Free
  • Non-GMO
  • Nice website with guides on what to use the spices on and in depth descriptions
Their Spices would make a wonderful gift this Holiday Season for the Foodie or Cook in your life.
