Below are three photos to give you an idea of how much product you will receive in each size package. We filled up each size bag with marbles and placed them next to a quarter to provide a clear representation. There are two different photos, one for standard spices/seasonings and one for herbs. Since many herbs are so leafy the same weight will fill up a much larger bag. This is why some of the herb prices seem a lot higher than the spice prices, but you are actually receiving more product.
The third image is of our 1 cup Bottle with Sifter next to a popular national brand found in most grocery stores. You can see that our bottle holds close to 2.5 times more product than the national brand bottle. Plus, ours often costs less! Please be aware some other online retailers only offer 1/2 cup(4 fluid ounces) bottles. We choose to offer double the size 1 cup (8 fluid ounces) bottles to give you the biggest bang for your buck!
We hope you can see from these images that regardless of which size you order, you are getting a lot of product and a very good value compared to the supermarket.
French Onion Soup Recipe
Soup just hits the spot this time of year. With a little patience, and not-so-much effort, you can have this homemade classic bubbling on your stove. Fragrant Bay Leaf and freshly ground Thyme complement these gorgeous onions.
Level of Difficulty:Easy
Cook Time:2 Hours
Prep Time:30 Minutes
- 1/2 cup
- 2 large
- 1 tablespoon
- 8 cups
Melt the stick of butter in a large oven-safe soup pot. Slice the onions and add them to the pot. Cover the pot and let them sweat for about 15 minutes. Stir every five minutes or so.
Place the covered soup pot in a 400-degree oven and bake for about 30 minutes. The onions should be a light tan color at this point. If they are not, vent your cover and place back in the oven for an additional 30 minutes.
Uncover and put back on the stovetop. Add the flour. Scrape up the onions and make sure to get all the bits off the bottom of the pan. Cook for 5 minutes. Add the beef broth in slowly, stirring. Add the bay leaf and thyme. Simmer over medium-low heat for another 30 minutes. Remove the bay leaf before serving.
Lightly butter your sliced, crusty bread. Broil under the broiler until the butter is melted. Top with a bit of Parmesan, and place the bread with the soup. You can eat it on the side, or some people prefer it in their soup.
