Hi all,

long time no see.

I'm looking for some advice on what to buy at the Istanbul spice market. I'm certainly thinking some red pepper, mint, oregano and other herbs, maybe cumin....what else? What can you actually buy there?

What I would buy is:

Persian Mint



Persian Dill

pistachios nuts

rose water

I use the rose water in pie crusts and Chinese sasauge.

All of these spieces are also used in Persian and Lebanese dishes.
