My Spiffy Spice Shelf by Majnouna My Spiffy Spice Shelf by Majnouna

I am somewhat obsessed with spices: learning their properties, collecting them, using them, and of course drawing them. This, then, is the spice shelf of my dreams, and close enough to the one I made for my kitchen. Of the bewildering array of spices available on the market I picked out 38 primary ones (that are not a mixture of several spices) that are stored this way (as opposed to, say, garlic, which you really want fresh) and readily available almost anywhere. Faced with the dilemma of representing them whole or ground, I put the powder in the jars and the original form on the label.

I love spices ^_^ I even recognize most of these, except for galangal, mahlab, sumac and asafoetida.
However, it's not 'chilli', it's chile. ^^;

Open a dictionary rather than making silly assumptions.

Your English leaves much to be desired, if you don't know what coriander means.
