Whole spices are often overlooked because using spices in their whole form sounds complicated to some. In fact, it’s surprisingly easy! Toasted, cracked, fresh ground, or infused, using a whole spice in your cooking can pack a ton of flavor and can often be more potent than pre-ground spices. Try any of our whole spice peppercorns freshly ground in a Cole & Mason Pepper Mill and you'll fall in love with pepper all over again. Whole spices also work well when you use a liquid to extract the flavor from the seeds…think brining, infusing, marinating, and pickling. Explore different flavors with whole spice blends like Pickling Spice, Chai Spices, and Mulling Spices, or Indian whole spices like Bengal Bay “Panch Phoron.” Don't be intimidated by our whole spices—work your way through them all with free shipping on all orders over $35.
