Typical elaboration & preparation methods
Spices can be used for food and drink preparation in several forms: fresh, whole dried, or pre-ground dried. Most often, spices are dried. Some spices are rarely available either fresh or whole, Small seeds are used both whole and in powder form.
The flavors of spices usually are conserved best when stored as a whole and grinded when needed.
Some flavor elements in spices are soluble in water; many are soluble in oil or fat. As a general rule, the flavors from a spice take time to infuse into the food so spices are added early in preparation. Herbs on the other side often are heat sensitive and should be added only at the late stage of cooking.
