can you make spices from any plant leave or root?
we grow lemons, peaches, nectarines, hot and sweet peppers, tomatoes, and almonds can you make a spice out of those?
if so can you send me a recipe so that I can try? Thank You!

Hi lacibear05. No, you can't make spices out of most of the plants you mentioned except for the peppers. They can be dried and ground.
I garden for the pollinators.
