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.

- 2 cups
- 1 cup
vanilla bean, split lengthwise
- 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon
- 3 ounces
- 1 teaspoon
freshly grated nutmeg+ extra for topping, if desired
- 1/4 teaspoon
- 1/8 teaspoon
crushed grains of paradise (optional)
- 1/8 teaspoon
fleur de sel salt
egg whites (reserved in refrigerator)
Whipped cream for topping (optional)

In a medium sized pot combine milk and cream. Scrape vanilla bean seeds into pot and add outer pod as well. Add 1 teaspoon nutmeg, cloves, grains of paradise and salt. Whisk until combined.
Bring mixture to a boil on medium heat, stirring occasionally.
While milk mixture is cooking, beat egg yolks until they form a lighter color and slowly add 1/3 cup of sugar, beating until the sugar dissolves.
Temper the milk mixture into the egg mixture by adding a small amount of the milk mixture to the egg mixture, while rapidly beating the egg mixture.
Add the egg-milk mixture to the pot, whisking rapidly. Return pot to heat, bring to a simmer on medium high heat.
Remove mixture from heat and add bourbon.
Place mixture in a heatproof container, cover, and chill in refrigerator for 6-8 hours.
When ready to consume egg nog, whip egg whites on high speed using a mixer or very rapidly by hand, gradually adding 1 tablespoon of sugar, until whites reach a stiff peak.
Remove vanilla pod from egg nog mixture and gently whisk whites with mixture. Serve with whipped cream and freshly grated nutmeg and a cinnamon stick if desired.
