Spices are universally recognized as a source of flavor and aromatics, but in cultures around the world, these plant parts have a long history as source of medicine. In Spice Apothecary, author Bevin Clare combines her training in herbalism and nutrition to inspire a return to the kitchen spice cabinet for better health and healing. Focusing on 19 common culinary spices that are easy to source and prized for their flavor, this practical guide highlights each spice’s role in supporting wellness goals and delivers creative and impactful ways to incorporate key health-boosting spices into everyday life. To bolster the immune system, chili, garlic, ginger, and mustard are best. Celery seed, parsley, and sage support kidney function, while the respiratory system benefits most from ginger, mint, and thyme. Learn the best way to harness each spice’s medicinal power, the proper way to store spices, and how to determine your daily dose. Then, prepare customized dried spice blends and use them in delicious dips, soups, sauces, and even sweets that deliver flavor and healing.
