Spice Is Nice...When You Know How Much You've Added

Here's the scenario: Your preparing a dish and the recipe calls for a 1 or 2 teaspoons of a particular could be cinnamon, cumin, chili powder or any other of the many spices lined-up on your spice rack. You open the bottle and find a plastic cover with holes staring you in the face.

Don’t spend precious time sprinkling in the spice and judging the amount you've added based on tasting it over and over again. Pop off those pesky plastic covers and discard them so you always have easy access to the spice with your measuring spoons.

When it comes to spices, knowing how much you’ve added can free you from the time consuming guess work.
