NPR's Michele Norris has a Thanksgiving chat with Tom and Patty Erd, the owners of Spice House, a Chicago-area specialty store that not only sells spices but educates customers about the history of each spice. The couple discuss some traditional holiday spices — the nutmeg and allspice of pumpkin pie, for example — that make Thanksgiving smell so good.
