Just in time for summer, TSP Spices has introduced “the scoop” combo tin ($9.99), featuring the organic spices and recipes needed to make flavorful ice cream. This type of pairing is an effort on the part of the Baltimore company to expand uses for its individual teaspoon-sized spice packets, available at some area markets or online at tspspices.com. “We’re trying to do more,” says TSP’s new owner Chad Meyer. “We’re going to do them for every holiday.” Other combo tins include “cookie jar” with cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, ginger, lemon zest, and orange zest, and “dinner party” with rosemary, oregano, basil, clove, ginger, and cumin to make dishes like rosemary roasted potato medley. The possibilities are endless, Meyer says, thinking ahead to spice mixes for Fourth of July, Valentine’s Day, and Halloween. “It makes it really easy to mix and match,” he says.
