Would you focus on spices of a particular cuisine or select a core group that works for many cuisines and maybe a few for spscific suisines? Would you stick to herbs and spices that can be grown in your area or would you choose the world as your garden?Herbs and Spices may be fresh or dried or otherwise preserved.For the multiuse part consider what else the herb or spice could be used for in addition to cooking. It might be good for medicine, cosmetics and toiletries, dyes, or other uses. Even better if it has more than one additional use :-). More than 10 of them can be multiuse if you like.(PS this does not include condiments like vinegar, prepared mustard (Mustard seed is ok), or fish sauce. That's a future question.)Sharon
