Spices do not grow pre-ground in jars on their respective trees and whole spices are not simply for mulling wine, although that is definitely one of the best uses of them. They're for grinding in your spice grinder, which is another way of saying "your other coffee grinder you only use for spices." Two of the same appliances taking up precious space in your kitchen?

Quick health fact: okra has so much digestible fiber that you'll be "internally cleansing" for days. It's miraculous in that it will keep you full longer than meat of any kind in any portion — and believe me, I've eaten some unwise portions of meat.
