Derived from a green, leafy plant, we grind this fenugreek into a fine powder that makes a magnificent addition to warm curry powders. Initially bitter on the palate, fenugreek finishes with a sweeter, smoky, almost maple flavor that will lure you in for another bite. Known to evoke both the flavors of celery and burnt sugar, a unique combination of tastes is presented in fenugreek. In the Middle East, it's blended with oil and other spices to make a dip for pita and flatbread. This spice is widely known for its medicinal qualities, so when you add it to your latest lamb or chicken dishes, you're not just being good to your food, you're being good to your body, too.
