Penzy's 10 minutes away, savory spice shop 20 minutes away, staying away from them takes a lot of restraint! I am going to go to savory on Saturday to pick up spices for tandoori chicken. Rob loves tandoori chicken but every place around here charges a fortune for it. He came home with half a tandoori chicken that looked more like a pigeon, I've never seen chicken pieces that small, the chicken alone cost $12.99 FOR HALF OF A TINY CHICKEN! they put it on a big pile of sliced onions so that it looked like something in the container. This seems to be the status quo when it comes to Indian food here.

:rolf:

Sorry for that, Bakechef, but I can't imagine a pigeon-sized half chicken!

The next time I go to Costco I'm going to buy the giant size bottle that I've seen there. I love to do a beer butt chicken with lots of it sprinkled inside and out.

I have been thinking about this thread and I have to say, I don't think I have a favorite seasoning blend.

I have a bunch in my spice cabinet but can't really point to a favorite. I have two kinds of Penzeys seasoned salt. Cajun, Italian, Turkish seasonings. Curry powders, etc.

I make my own Sel Fou.
I made a few dozen small jars as Christmas gifts. I buy fresh horseradish, pile it, rough chop, into processer until the pieces are the size of pepper corns, spread out on a cookie sheet, roasted until just turned brown, cooled, into coffee bean grinder. Now I have dried pieces grind fairly fine but not to powder.

Salt, fresh ground pepper, Italian mixed. I go REAL light of the pepper. I love it, it hates me. And you can never have too much garlic.

I picked up a 1/2 gal of Frank's extra hot sauce at the cash and carry place Friday. That should last me a few weeks...

Myrtle and the rest of the girls will get nervous if they see all of that hot sauce!

Since I've discovered Penzey's I can't really pinpoint a favorite, but a few of my top faves are Mural of Flavor, Arizona Dreaming, and McCormicks makes a lemon pepper, garlic, and onion blend that I really like.

I love fresh cracked pepper, and cannot do without that, I put it on everything. My pepper mill broke a couple of days ago and I went out that same day and bought another one. Not happy with it, but we don't have much of a choice here, so the next time I go to the city I'm going to get a better one.
