Spice up your day with today's new puzzle. Used for flavoring, coloring or preserving food, spices are seeds, fruits, roots or piece of bark. Herbs are the leaves, flowers, or stems of plants used for flavoring or as a garnish. The spice trade developed throughout South Asia and Middle East by at earliest 2000 BCE with cinnamon and black pepper, and in East Asia with herbs and pepper. Early uses were connected with magic, medicine, religion, tradition, and preservation. Spices were among the most demanded and expensive products available in Europe in the Middle Ages, the most common being black pepper, cinnamon, cumin, nutmeg, ginger and cloves. The most exclusive was saffron, used as much for its vivid yellow-red color as for its flavor. With the discovery of the New World came new spices, including allspice, chili peppers, vanilla, and chocolate. Solve this fun and colorful puzzle and let us know what spice or herb is your favorite.
