Savory Spices of Denver

I have said many times that LOVE is always the most important ingredient added to any dish or recipe.  However, it is by no means the only ingredient.  For anyone who cooks, we all know that there are simple recipes with only a few ingredients, as well as some complicated recipes that require a lot of ingredients, and often times, some of these are specialized items that are hard to find.  This does not have to be the case though.  Savory Spice is specialty spice shop that offers the finest spices from all over the world.  It is a locally owned and operated business that started right here in Denver, Colorado, by Mike and Janet Johnson, in 2004.  I was introduced to the Savory Spice world a little over a year ago by my friend Janet (a different Janet than the owner), and instantly fell in love with the store and its products.  Both Mike and Janet are avid home cooks and bakers who decided to open a specialty spice shop for fresh and unique spices to enhance their recipes. Today, there are four Savory Spice shops located throughout the Denver Metro area.  They offer 554 different products, and their products are currently used by over 1100 restaurants.  All of the “spices are ground fresh in small batches for superior quality and flavor” and can be purchased in jars or in small bags.  All of the jars are still hand-filled in either the Denver warehouse or in any one of the store locations.  If you have already purchased products from Savory Spice, keep the bottles and jars so they can be refilled.  You get a discount for doing so and you are helping the environment by recycling and re-using the jars as well.  It’s a win/win situation for everyone, plus you are using top-notch, quality spices and flavorings for your recipes.  It doesn’t get much better than  that.  You can learn more about Savory Spice by checking out their website‎.

Here are some of my recent Savory Spice purchases.  If I can, I love buying local and supporting small, family-owned businesses.


They even have recipe cards with fabulous recipes that highlight different spices and flavorings.
