lol @ a Lucy Van Pelt reference. lou know, i think i married her.

maddie, love it - insinuate. is coleman's yellow mustard the spicy one i know and is sinus clearingly famous for , or is it a blander, more pedestrian mustard?

hmm, i have all of your lesser used spices except the black mustard seed.

oh, i wanted to mention that using a chili powder mix is about the sane as any prepared shortcut: you only realize the difference when you make it fresh. grinding your own dried chilis (especially chipotle) makes all the difference.

for chili.

Agree completely re: grinding your own chili powder mix. Glad to see you haven't abandoned us--you've been missed along the culinary trail. How is that boy of yours??? Missed tales of his ball games, scout troop activities, etc.

I thought this would be easy, however I'm finding it deceptively difficult to narrow my choices down. In no particular order:

Garlic powder
Chili powder
Cumin
Red pepper flakes
Tumeric

I Love Lucy.

But that's another age related statement.


I'm more like Pigpen with the dust cloud following me where ever I go.


Here's another reason I love Lucy.

QUESTION: What FIVE spices do you tend to grab MOST OFTEN (not including Salt & Pepper)

Here are mine, in no particular order:

Garlic Powder
Fresh Nutmeg (grated)
Cinnamon
Tarragon
Oregano
Tarragon, oregano and garlic are herbs not spices.

I have a drawer full of jars of spices and herbs and my usage depends on what I'm cooking:-

Spices
allspice,
mixed spice,
star anise
ginger,
nutmeg (not grated - grate it as I use it as the flavour is better)
saffron stamens
coriander (whole seed and ground)
cumin (whole seed and ground)
cardamon
chili flakes
cayenne
chili powder (mix for making chili con carne)
mustard powder
bharat
ras el hanout
sumac
caraway seed
garlic (NEVER powder or dried & chopped or in a jar - ALWAYS fresh!)

Herbs (Some dried & some home grown fresh)
basil
sage
thyme
mixed herbs
oregano
tarragon
rosemary
marjoram
chives
parsley
winter savory
chives
bay leaves
English mace leaves

Wouldn't be able to choose 5 of each let alone an assortment of 5 herbs and spices.

Herbs are leaves, so garlic is not an herb.
