When cooking with delicious organic ingredients or with heavenly scented spices (think cinnamon and nutmeg for example), it is important to use the right kind of food containers. If you store the yummy ingredients in plastic boxes, for example, the food can pick up unpleasant tastes - even if you don't consciously recognise the plastic taste, it's common for people not to enjoy such food as such. Remember drinking water from a plastic water bottle, say on a bicycle, on a hot day to recall that unpleasant plastic taste.
In this receipe, and the related supporting YouTube video, we emphasise No Taste, No Toxins innovative polylactic acid (PLA) food containers from Bioaware to preserve the yummy taste of delicious organic ingredients and sumptuous quality spices.
