Everybody’s eating at home these days, and what better gift for yourself or someone special, than a set of top-quality spices perfect for any cook.

A good cook knows the value of top-quality seasonings, and Morton & Bassett has assembled gift sets ranging from The Dream Kitchen that will stock a kitchen with 70 different herbs, spices, and extracts, to the Eight-Favorite Gift Set in a gift box with ribbon.

Morton & Bassett Spices have handsome clear jars that are pleasant to hold, and their wide mouths allow insertion of most measuring spoons. The absence of paper labels means that their contents and quality are easily visible. And quality is the key characteristic of these all-natural preservative-free spices.

Bright flavors, colors, and aromas are all testament to the freshness of the products.  More than once I’ve had visitors to my kitchen comment on the beauty of Morton & Bassett bay leaves — which are available in a choice of two varieties, Turkish and California. Spice blends are salt-free. Herbs from Provence is a blend of chervil, basil, rosemary, tarragon, garlic, lavender, marjoram, savory, thyme and parsley — sensational for rubbing on a chicken to be roasted, or for adding to a vinaigrette.

I especially like The Home Chef 16-jar gift set, which is great for replenishing a kitchen or setting up a new one. The set includes a bottle of Morton & Bassett fragrant and flavorful vanilla extract. The 8-jar Herb Gift Set contains rosemary, thyme, sage, tarragon, oregano, basil, dill, and my favorite, Herbs from Provence.
