More than I expected
Excellent service. Ordering easy, arrived on time and fantastic quality.
Cinnamon - Incomparably HEAVENLY flavor & perfume.
Ditto for Nutmegs- i had to learn to crack them gently, again wonderful flavor, Transforms Bechamel sauce into something special., wonderful on spinach , cream sauces, paté , or just grated on hot milk for bedtime drink.
Tumeric is OK flavor a bit "off" ?? So not v nice taken raw as healthfood , but fine cooked.
Overall, v happy , will reccomend Dru Era to friends & order again.
