View Full Version : Herbs and Spices

Do you use herbs and spices? I use a lot and have recently found that Jack Mackay's in Thurso has a great range at very good prices.
For example, I wanted star anise, in Tesco 25g was 2.49, at Mackay's it was 20g for 1.10! I have found this to be the case with most (but not all) of their spices.

hi there where abouts is this shop and is it all pre packed stuff or like pick n mix? and how big a selection do they have?

It's the little delicatessen shop between McBeaths Jewellers and Jonstons Bakery or thereabouts.
They have a much better selection than Tesco's Thurso, everything is in jars or packets. I was just delighted to find them as I couldn't get what I wanted elsewhere. :)

If you go down to the woods today might still be sum wild garlic left to pick for free
