Garam is the Indian word for warm which is incredibly appropriate for this cozy blend. We mix sweet, mellow spices like cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, and mace to create an earnest balance of complementary flavors that warms your meals and your stomach. Traditionally used in curries for meat, fish or fowl, or in thick, steaming lentil soups, garam masala can also be cooked in combination with western food for a modern twist. Try spicing cocktail nuts with it, or add it to pumpkin pie for an interesting jolt. It's best to sprinkle this tawny blend on your food toward the end of cooking because prolonged exposure to heat dims the floral, nutty fragrance.
