No sugar but plenty of spice, and all things nice
I like to think of myself as an adventurous cook and, needless to say, eater, but I recognise only about three quarters of this beautiful array of spices.
I can see green, black, white and mixed peppers; green and black cardamoms; saffron; paprika; red, green and dried chilli peppers (or however you prefer to spell it); cinnamon and mace; star anise. Then it all becomes a little vague, not to mention hard to see.
Maybe you aren't supposed to try to identify them but I would have liked a list on the back of the card. It is one of the very sought after Nouvelles Images cards, best known for their multiple images on one card though they do have a much larger range. I tend to associate these cards with France but this one came from the Netherlands.
