Spicy Review

We had shipping difficulties as we did not include the Apartment number in our order. When I discovered this, the folks at Rum immediately made the correction and shipped out a replacement bottle of the spice to my granddaughter who lives several thousands of miles away from us. She received it within two days and used it that evening. She loves it and is going to be placing her own orders now.

Versatile mix

I have used this mix with chicken, pork, beef, and vegetables and it's great! It's fragrant and savory without heat making it a great mix to pair with just about anything. It's one of those mixes that tastes even better than it smells.

The Afghan Curry Braise and the other spices that I ordered were attractively and securely packaged, and they crossed the country safely to Seattle. Now that I have had a chance to try them, I think that the spice blends are outstanding.
