I’m really interested in learning more about local wild, edible plants, so hopefully I’l be rooting around in the woods for some fungus soon.

And if you made the black pepper and cumin pickled carrots from last week, here’s a recipe to try them with. Any wild mushrooms will do for this recipe, but I picked out two of my favorites today: oyster mushrooms and chanterelles. Oyster mushrooms can be cultivated, so you are likely to find them outside of peak mushroom season. Chanterelles, however, do not cooperate with human cultivation.

Sweet Chili Sauce

Normally, I’d say ranch dressing, but two years ago, I discovered Sweet Chili Sauce. I thought it was made with some fancy Asian ingredients, so it never occurred to me to make my own. Then one day during winter, I somehow stumbled upon a recipe. It uses jalapenos? Really? The first time I tried Sweet Chili Sauce was for a giveaway I hosted. I could practically drink this sauce (except for the throat burning part).

The Commonly Used Indian Spices

Spices or Masala as it is called in Hindi, may be called the “heartbeat” of an Indian kitchen. By extensive use of spices I do not mean that spices are used to make the food fiery hot. The spices are used to flavor the food, making each dish distinct and wonderfully aromatic.

Spices are also used for health benefits and medicinal purposes, to prevent diseases and also to preserve food.
