Spice mixes combine various complementary spices and herbs for culinary purposes. While it is possible to buy already-prepared spice mixes, it is often enjoyable to make your own, for freshness and to allow for your own experimentation.
Making mixtures from scratch is useful not only for home use but also for businesses, such as cafes and restaurants.
Packaged or bottled spice mixes are another good business idea for those growing, harvesting and selling spices. They can be made into boutique spice mix ranges to appeal to people at farmers markets, gourmet grocery retail outlets, spice markets, etc.
Masala is a South Asian word for spice mix.
