Recent discoveries from Spice Mountain online, various new chillies. Aleppo chilli flakes; jalapeno green chili powder; chinese angel hair chilis.

Same source gave me dried ground lemon peel, kaffir lime powder.

Maldon salt, costs me a fortune cos I use it for everything.

fresh mint from just outside the kitchen door. living fragrance.

In terms of condiments, I'm slightly obsessed with sriracha and M&S piri piri mayonnaise at the moment.

From the garden, mainly rosemary which my wife has brought with us after moving twice. They're doing magnificently.

Recipes involving one or more of paprika/smoked paprika, fresh chilies, ginger, rosemary, cumin and/or lime juice always seem to work well. I would add garlic, but most recipes have that.

Preserved lemons of the sort they have in lebanese shops

angelico - 08 Jun 2020 10:09:04 (#10 of 76)

Angelica bought some odd ones. "Coconut aminos" apparently from nectar, used instead of soy sauce (don't know why; is that bad?). Sweet, a little umami. Very good on stir fries.

And some sort of processed dried yeast with a pleasant cheesy flavour. Good on pasta but not a patch on parmesan.

angelico - 08 Jun 2020 10:09:20 (#11 of 76)

oh hyes - preserved lemons!

tasselhoff - 08 Jun 2020 10:13:46 (#12 of 76)

Nothing is a patch on parmesan for yumminess.

Tadagee - 08 Jun 2020 10:16:22 (#13 of 76)

or smelling vaguely of sick.

Paprika, preserved lemons, chickpeas, figs.

GINGER

I've been bunging chaat masala in various dishes lately. Easy to overdo as it's very sweet and salty but it makes a nice change to my usual cumin/coriander/chilli approach.

What's the difference between store cupboard and larder?

Catspyjamas17 - 08 Jun 2020 10:23:59 (#17 of 76)

Oh yes, chickpeas. Definitely.

A larder traditionally has some ventilation, and could be tiled for coolness.

dreams99 - 08 Jun 2020 10:26:49 (#19 of 76)

People have fridges now.

StammtischMentality - 08 Jun 2020 10:32:24 (#20 of 76)

I have 2 fridges, 2 larders, and an outdoor fridge which is basically a cupboard built into the kitchen that opens out directly onto the balcony with wire mesh all round to stop flies getting in. Very useful for housing stinking cheeses, and cooling stuff before it goes in the actual fridge/freezer
