While photographing locally produced food for a thesis project, Miranda Watson was struck by the beauty of it all. So much so that she wanted to capture the flavors in a different way—through handcrafted spice blends. She thought, besides snapping photos, what better way to preserve local flavors than making them into a product that can last past the seasons? Miranda got to work making unique spice blends that kick things up in the kitchen, from mild to wild. She uses fresh, whole, locally sourced ingredients that are ground in small batches. Definitely a recipe to spice up your life.
