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.

Irish American Soda Bread

The white “Irish” soda bread with raisins that we, in the United States have come to know is not traditionally Irish. In fact, soda bread in Ireland is typically made without sugar, butter, or raisins. Nonetheless, globalization creates new cultures and traditions and has a fantastic way of fusing the old with the new. As an Irish American, I become excited for the sweet loaves of bread made with butter and raisins, sold everywhere from the grocery store to even the local Italian bakery around St. Patrick’s Day. That’s exactly what this recipe is. Enjoy!

  • Yield:1 medium loaf

  • Level of Difficulty:Easy

  • Cook Time:40 Minutes

  • Prep Time:20 Minutes


  • 2 cups

    all purpose flour

  • 1/4 cup

    granulated sugar

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons

    baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon

    baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon


  • 2 tablespoons

    cold butter cut into small cubes -or- 2 tablespoons coconut oil*

  • 1/2 cup

    golden raisins

  • 1/2 cup

    plain raisins

  • 1 cup

    buttermilk -or- 1 cup soy milk+1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar**

  • 2 tablespoons

    caraway seeds (optional)


*Coconut oil makes a great substitute for butter, if you live in a hot climate and your coconut oil is a clear liquid, refrigerate until it turns into a white solid before using.

** If you are allergic to dairy, soy buttermilk can be made by adding any type of vinegar (we prefer the flavor outcome of apple cider vinegar) to soy milk and allowing it to sit at room temperature for five minutes. Vinegar can also be added to whole fat cow’s milk, in the same quantity, to make buttermilk.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (191 degrees Celsius).

Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda in a large bowl for a few seconds until light and airy looking.

Rub butter (or coconut oil) into flour mixture until a coarse meal has formed.

Slowly and gently stir buttermilk (or soy buttermilk) in.

Gently fold raisins and caraway seeds (if using) into the dough.

Place dough on parchment lined baking sheet and press into a slightly flattened out ball.

Using a sharp pairing knife, mark top with a cross (or an X) and bake in preheated oven for 37-40 minutes until golden on top and toothpick comes out clean when inserted in center. Allow to cool, on baking sheet for fifteen minutes before eating.
