As far as I can remember my mom never used a spice bag. I grew up with spices wrapped up in coffee filters before they were set into a pot of delicious concoctions. So, when I entered the world of having my own kitchen and needed a spice bag…I naturally grabbed a coffee filter. I now know there are actual spice bags out there, but I have one hundred coffee filters ready to go, any time I need them. Need something to tie the spice bag up with and have no kitchen floss (who does?) – Use Unwaxed Dental Floss! Voila’ a rope for your food!.
