What are your favorite spices and herbs?

butts butts
I'm a huge herb and spice fan, I love to collect unusual ones and both my partner and I tend to over-herb our meals, the flavors are just amazing! I tried to include everything that MOST people use, and a few lesser known ones that I love.

Oh my heavens, this is an INTENSE poll! Haha... I'm not much of a cook, but I love the smell of certain spices. My man could answer this much better than I could, I'm sure.

I love so many! I put garlic in just about anything I cook, I love it! For sweet things I love vanilla, I try to keep vanilla beans in the house for that special extra kick of vanilla in desserts.

Almost all of them! I love thyme, curry, anything with capsaicin, ginger, garlic, basil... well I could go on.
What do you use juniper berries in? Sounds interesting, I like the smell but never eaten one.

They're very fragrant, almost pine-like. They're used in soup broth, teas, and the stuffing my dad makes for holidays has juniper in it. I've seen some great recipes with crushed juniper berries in roasted potatoes, I've always wanted to try it.
