Tellicherry pepper

garlic

cumin

roasted peppers

'scuse my ignorance Laurie - What's Tellicherry pepper?

Most spice experts agree that Tellicherry pepper is the best of the black peppers with Malabar pepper rating second. Both grown on the East Coast of India, Tellicherry is a large very, very black peppercorn, with bold flavor, whereas Malabar is slightly less black, smaller and less pungent. Pungency is the hot sensation produced in the amount by constituents of spices such as pepper, chilies or ginger which also contribute to flavor.

salt

umeboshi

lemon pepper

ginger

garlic

Good call on the umeboshi and fish sauce. Also Thai chile, limes, mint.

Ask me on another day and it'll be thyme, tarragon, olive oil, rosemary, and salt.

And another day: cumin, clove, cardamom, mustard seed, star anise

One woman very courteously approached me in a grocery store, saying, "Excuse me, but I must ask why you've brought your dog into the store." I told her that Grace is a service dog.... "Excuse me, but you told me that your dog is allowed in the store because she's a service dog. Is she Army or Navy?" Terry Thistlewaite

smoked paprika

Black Pepper (My grinder broke last week, been having to use a pestle and mortar - and I am finding the control on the grind really brought back what a remarkable spice it is)

Nutmeg (In moderation)

Sherry and it's related vinegar.

Mustard seeds

I love animals.

They are delicious.
