I Have A Smuggler
I'm only kidding. These were not part of any kind of smuggling. It just seems kind of fitting to say especially when a friend comes home from afar, and hands you a plastic bag of brown beans and a container of dried plant.
Wendy came home from what sounded like a splendid trip in Dubai, and brought home some goodies for me from their spice markets. On the right is a bag of vanilla beans. Plump... still very soft... and very fragrant. On the left is one of world's most expensive spices - saffron. I've seen saffron as a powder, but not still in its plant form.
Anyway, I think I'm suppose to figure out projects with these things. Hmm... back in the kitchen I go!
