You could spend a lot of money on those mix packages. At a dollar a piece, do the
math. You are paying a lot of money per pound for something you probably already have in your cabinet. Spices are all over for a buck. They are also cheaper at costco and you could share with a friend if the quqnity is too much. Business Costco caters to restraunts. For four dollars I have enough basil for a lifetime. Spices loose their strength over time. None the less, makimg your own saves a lot of money and you don't get preservatives and can adjust the recipe accordingly.
