    Re: Food Poll #11: How do you Herb it up?

    It's a variant upon the same thing. A root that is ground up and gives a pungent, hot flavor. My usual suspects are garlic, cilantro, black pepper, and various chili powders.

    Fake wasabi is horseradish. Real wasabi isn't actually as spicy as horseradish, and it looses its spice about 20 minutes after grating. It has to be made fresh. It comes from the Wasabi japonica plant's root. Most people have probably never had it--this article says that only like 5% of restaurants in Japan have real wasabi because its so hard to grow commercially. I've had real wasabi once--my very cousin's wife's family smuggled it in on their private jet (they own some fishing fleet and chain of fish markets or something in Japan...not sure, since I've only met her family twice, I just know their wedding cost something like 150k US, and half of it was her kimono and her Western style dress).

Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    Lemon pepper on anything. But Tajin. On EVERYTHING!
    Old school it's probably pepper. I'm big on herbs since I have to cut back on the salt. All of Mrs Dash no salt seasonings are awesome.

    It's a cruel thing to make a Kitchen Witch choose. But I would have to say cinnamon and sage, if I only got two.

    I got my war paint on and I'm off to go passive-aggressive all over these socially awkward man-witches.

    I voted for "all", but I mean all except Tarragon. It tastes soapy to me, like Cilantro does to some people. I have Rosemary & Basil growing in pots in the kitchen, and all the others are McCormick in the spice racks!

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    All of them! I think I use all of those on a weekly basis.

    Re: Food Poll #11: How do you Herb it up?

    We grow Basil and Rosemary but I keep all the herbs listed on hand in the freezer. (herbs at room temperature and in sunlight don't last very long)
    By we, I mean my wife. I do the cooking and I checked all the herbs on the list because the "all" choice added "I just can't decide". I can decide and I will take them all. (sometimes the rules just don't apply)

    I really love Garam Masala. Usually I put cumin and tumeric with it as well.
