Herbal Flowers

The green leafy parts of plants are considered herbs. Every other part of the plant, including dried bark, roots, berries, seeds, twigs, or anything else that isn't the green leafy part, is considered a spice. Spices are used in dried form while herbs can be used either fresh or dried. Spices start to lose their flavour when they are ground. So whenever possible, it's best to grind your own spices immediately before using them, rather than using spices that are already ground. You can use a coffee grinder or mortar and pestle for this purpose. While spices don't actually spoil or rot, they will lose their flavour over time. Whole dry spices can last for up to two years if stored properly. Spices last longer when stored in a cool, dry location. An enclosed spice rack or storing them in an opaque container will help your spices keep their flavour longer.
