Welcome to Gernot Katzer’s Spice Pages

Emphasis is on their usage in ethnic cuisines, particularly in Asia; furthermore, I discuss their history, chemical constituents, and the etymology of their names. Last but not least, there are numerous photos featuring the live plants or the dried spices.

, where succulent cuttings come in small packages. Urban Garden Casual
