Spices, for all its similarity, and identification on the household level, differ by origin. Spices are seasonings made exclusively from plants (Basil, cloves, mustard), spices and mixtures of spices with different foods and liquids (vinegar, citric acid).
But in order not to complicate the cooking division of the seasonings on the spice, we assume these two categories sinomenine and operate them as one and the same concept, the more that they perform functions the way it is.
What can spices
Using condiments can enhance the flavor of cooked dishes, or, conversely, to soften, to emphasize the superior flavor or to disguise, hide unwanted smell change smell, taste and color of the finished product. And spices enhance the safety of foods and enhance their nutritional value.
When to add seasoning to dishes
In cold dishes, sauces and mayonnaise spices should be added an hour before eating, giving them the time and opportunity to exert their effects on products.
But in hot food seasoning should be positioned just before they are ready because the hot product of seasoning will quickly connect with all components of the meals and long period of heat treatment will cause all the taste and flavour of spices will evaporate together with the steam.
