OTTAWA’S PREMIER SPICE SHOP

If you’ve ever gone in search of lava salt, ajowan or chili threads in Ottawa, you know fresh, high-quality herbs and spices can be hard to find. Friendly, expert advice can be just as scarce, since most grocers know relatively little about herbs and spices.

At Cardamom & Cloves, we aim to change all that. We’re Ottawa’s premier spice shop. We source a wide selection of bulk and pre-packaged products from around the world (and our own region). We also grow a variety of fresh herbs in store

But we don’t just stock herbs and spices — we know a lot about them, their rich history, deep cultural significance, and range of applications. It’s knowledge we love to share, and one of the secrets to our outstanding customer service.

THIS MONTH’S FEATURED SPICE: SZECHUAN PEPPERCORNS

 

SZECHUAN PEPPERCORNS: A common spice in Asian cuisine, szechuan peppercorns have a delightul floral scent and slight lemony overtones it creates a tingly numbness in the mouth. 

HONG KONG SALT SHRIMP

The shrimp are cooked straight in bubbling oil, tossed with salt, and then coated with Sichuan pepper, black pepper, and five-spice powder. The shells crisp up in the oil, and become tender enough to eat, or you can remove them if you like - but you'll be missing out!
