Penzey's spices

Here are Ground Leaf, we always want to be sure we’re setting you up for success in the kitchen! That includes letting you know EXACTLY what we’re doing and how we’re doing it! We are always going to let you know what products we use and love but that doesn’t mean they are required. We exclusively use and love PENZEYS spices. We think their quality is outstanding, but the best thing about them is they sell all their spices in 1/4 cup quantities, which is amazing if you want to try something new but not commit to a full size jar, or if you only buy in small quantities it’s a great way to ensure you always have fresh spices on hand. If you don’t have a local Penzey’s or don’t want to place an order online, we’ve included a breakdown of what is in the spice mixtures we use so that you can compare to similar spice mixtures you already have, or want to purchase at your local store, or try to mix it up yourself!
