Can You Guess The Spice ? - Page 2

post #31 of 37

Petals oh marvellous one :)

 

I know what you mean about finding a great spice store,  it is like opening a box of treasure, never knowing what you will find in there.  I had a great spice trader before we moved here, and I miss it greatly.  Just the aroma even before you got to the door - ahhh!

 

Things have been a bit busy so I've not found one  here yet, but there should be one hidden just around the corner.  It is a very multi-cultural area, so a good spice shop can't be too far away.

 

Does anyone know if there is a suitable replacement for dark malt vinegar, or is it possible to tweak standard malt vinegar to replicate it, perhaps?

Am now sure that "Bavarian" was wrong; but am sure about everything else.  On the other hand, if I'm wrong it would not be the first time -- not by about six orders of magnitude anyway.

 

BDL

I'd have gone along with BDL on 1, 2, and 4. But I hadn't a clue, from the quality of the photo, what #3 would have been.

 

It's also hard to tell, in isolation, what some spices look like because there are others that are similar. Just piled up, for instance, I would have accepted, as guesses for #4: cumin, fennel, anise (although a small seed, how can you really tell?), or caraway. Given the grouping of the four, however, I'd have gone with cumin.

Right it is tough, and if you look at poppy seeds they look very much like #3 in photos when there is no comparison for size. Probably not a fair venture but BDL had 1,2 and 4, and was definitely close with three, they are black mustard seeds. I thought it would be fun anyway
