Spice Maps

Apartment Therapy: The Kitchen is highlighting a homemade gift idea for your carto-cooking fan friends:



Package spices with cut out pieces of maps that highlight the country where the spice originates attached to the jar lid. Include recipes.

Can you identify which spices are likely to come from the places on the maps? I can identify four out of five of those places, but I cannot guess the one in the upper left. What country is that?

I can't make it out for sure, but it looks like a county-level map. Based on teh shape outlines..I'm guessing either central TX or north central GA.

It's North Carolina. You can line up Wake and Johnston counties pretty easily from this pic: http://www.ired.com/usa/nc/

(Or you can go dig up the original photo on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kag2u/2567738303/in/set-72157605544221241/ and click on "All Sizes".)

Ah, so it is.

Next question. What spice comes from that region?... besides BBQ sauce...

I suppose you could keep salt in it.

What a lovely idea! Thanks for mentioning it on your blog.

BBQ sauce wasn't too bad :) The flickr note says "North Carolina Tarheel BBQ Rub" http://www.flickr.com/photos/kag2u/2567736487/in/set-72157605544221241/
