Excellent!This herb when prepared in Moroccan style/ it has an odor that can make you unpleasant smelling. In fact, your sweat will smell bad. However, it has health properties that is unequivocally unparalleled by any western medicine in addressing leaky gut, weight reduction, body inflammation, arthritic and joint maladies, and reduction in cholesterol and blood soluble fat content. It is a stinky magic herb that should be made and garnished and enjoyed. You will see that it is addicting to eat "Hilbeh" as a spread on a piece of bread, when prepared in the following way. Soak for a day or more. Drink that water, because it is very good for you. After soaking, add Lemon Juice, Cilantro, salt and pepper, ginger, and garlic, and refrigerate for a day. WOW, enjoy it, and healthily stink to the high heavens.
This makes an excellent tea that was recommended by an acquaintance; I’d never heard of it before. Tasting like the characteristic maple syrup flavor it’s known for, it also sports a rich aroma from its fresh seeds. It’s giving me all kinds of ideas for use in vegetable and meat dishes, as well as for jazzing up sauces and desserts. IHerb’s offering is a high-quality product at a reasonable price with blistering fast shipping.
Great tasting product, the methi seed form from which fenugreek powder is made. I find it adds a pleasant sense of sweetness to my chili. It nicely balances out the bitterness of turmeric and ginger powder. Frontier Co-op offers top of the line quality and freshness, and climate-friendly bulk packaging. Always nothing but the best ingredients.
Most people use Fenugreek as a spice for stews or soups. I bought it with a different purpose., for the scalp and hair. Many natural hair sprays and serums contain Fenugreek. The package is huge, so you can make you own homemade sprays many times. Boil a spoon of the seeds in a little bit of water, let it simmer, leave it for an hour. Strain and apply water on your scalp. The smell is no the most pleasant, remind me chicken soup. I am sure Fenugreek has other great benefits.
I also use iHerb as a source for herbs and spices for cooking. The selection is terrific and the quality is excellent. In general iHerb is a great site. Great products, immense choice, competitive prices. Much better than what you get in stores in my country. iHerb, if you're listening: please offer more traditional herbs and spices! Where is your asafoetida (ferula assa-foetida)? Where is your mace (myristica fragrans aris)? and others!
This is a top quality product from Frontier. I trust this brand because all of their products have excellent ingredients! I got this supplement for my husband. His age is 35 years old. He suffers from staomache pain. Doctors told him he has pre-gastritis. What we do is I take a tablespoon of fenugreek, put it in a termos and pour boiling water over it, close the lid and let it sit overnight. In the morning on an empty stomache my husband drinks it and the benefit he gets is no pain. This is very soothing to the stomache and helps heal the stomach walls.
I bought this for my homemade curry. I came to Iherb online store before I realize there are Indian stores in my town. The Fenugreek seed came in a pretty big bag, and I used small amount of this. Still the taste of curry turns like restaurant! I am sure it will last for a long time. Thank you for carrying this seed!
