#2, which I always have; I also have the Mexican version, which is not related.

#2!! and I grow in a pot outside. It comes back every year - it is a terrific perennial!

#2,and it's probably the first of its genre I ever added to my cupboards.

#2, though I put the Mexican kind in #3 as well.

#2 - my very favorite, which I use several times a day!

must be #2 Yes I always have it in my cupboard. It goes crazy in the garden, pops up everywhere!

I have it in my pantry, dried.
My first guess was chamomile, until I realized that this entry was brought to us by the letter "O" :-)

It's all Greek to me. Number 2

#2.....smoke "it"?.....only Rabbit tobacco (lavender, for those unfamiliar w/ Peter Rabbit)

I use this ingredient a lot!

We keep a shaker on the table, so my husband can add it to just about anything, along with crushed chiles.
Amazing how it looks at this magnification!

We have both Mexican and Turkish dried "o" on hand. We used to grow it in our yard - it was great to add fresh "o" to the sauce!
