How do you use different herbs and spices in cooking and baking? I think I need to word this differently, since what I am really looking for is the Taste from different Herbs and spices, since I do know the difference and some basics. What I want to know is the Taste they may impart to the food I am preparing, such as Red Pepper tends to make things hot, Parsley tends to give things a sort of "lemony flavor", Cinnamon adds some sweetness and helps enhance the sweetness of some foods. The particular spices and herbs I want to know about are Tarragon, Cumin, Thyme, Saffron, Marjoram,Corriander and Cardamon. These are spices I want to try, but am not sure exactly what they do for the taste of food, and which foods they are best used in and how much!?!
