As a mentioned <earlier>

Hi,

Can I use the word "earlier" in a conversation that takes place in the same day, let's say within an hour? For example, my friends and I were talking about food, I had mentioned to my friend that I like spices and sometime later our conversation went to international food, my friend asked me if I want spices.

Can I tell my friend "As a mentioned earlier, I like spices.. etc.." ? Can you please advise if I'm using the word earlier correctly? Is this commonly used in this way ?

Please advise, thank you.
