I've just cleared out my store cupboard of long out of date spices bought from the supermarket. I'd rather buy in smaller quantities and better quality. Is online a good way to do this? If so, from where?

TIA

I think the best places are those with a high turnover of spices. Which is supermarkets, really. If you use spices in large volumes, ethnic grocers are much cheaper than online retailers and the spices are fresh. But if you only use small volumes, best sticking to supermarkets.

Foxs spices are amazing, lovely range of stuff. So old school they don't have web ordering but a paper catalogue - well worth it tho www.gourmetbritain.com/mailorder_entry.php?item=199

For specifically Indian type spices you can't beat Rafi's spice box.

Sorry pressed send! Spicery does monthly spice boxes through the post with recipe cards. Brilliant presents for food lovers. We had 6m worth for Christmas and have renewed as it was so good.

Thanks all!

See what you mean cogito I was thinking online might offer a better quality than Barts etc.

Skibum will look at that site. Spices with recipes sounds helpful as I'm all out of inspiration at the moment.
