Here are some tips on how to use the spices

Cumin: Add cumin seeds to ground meat or poultry before cooking, or sprinkle it onto cooked vegetables, grains, or soups.

Cardamom pods: Crush the cardamom pods and steep them in hot milk for a soothing cup of tea. Add a few pods to the coffee for an interesting flavor twist.

Fennel seeds: Fennel seeds are both savory and sweet and can be used in sauces, stews, couscous dishes, or as a garnish.

Mustard seeds: Add mustard seeds to roasted veggies or meats for a touch of salty flavor. Store spices in an airtight container in a cool place for up to 6 months.

Like any other seasoning, use spices sparingly – too much will overpower your dish and ruin the flavor. Also, be sure not to store them near direct heat – this could cause them to spoil. 

When using spices, make sure to taste them before you use them, so you know if they are still fresh.
