How spices can ruin the taste of dishes: avoid these mistakes

Don't forget to taste the dish

This is a very basic mistake, but it has the greatest impact on the taste of your dish. Never forget to taste the dish while it's cooking. And also after you turn off the stove. It often happens that some spice is missing. Or, on the contrary, you need to neutralize the taste of a seasoning.

Use black pepper correctly

Very often, you can put a lot of pepper in a dish, but you won't be able to taste it. This is because you are adding ground pepper from a packet. Over time, it loses its properties. That's why it's best to use pepper in a glass grinder. The dishes will be much more flavorful and tasty. And, at the same time, you don't need to add a lot of spices.

Adding dried herbs at the end of cooking is a mistake. These spices need time to develop their flavor. Therefore, it is best to add them from the beginning. But this does not apply to fresh herbs - they should be added at the end.

Old spices

If spices have been on the shelves for a long time, they deteriorate. Namely, they lose their flavor. So don't buy a lot of packs of spices at once. And don't be afraid to throw away old spices - they will no longer be useful.
