#3, and a new favorite at my house!

3 and yes, I use this in many recipes

3. Not in my pantry.

I was completely stumped by the photo, but yes I love this ingredient!

#3, not currently in our pantry but it is good eats!

3 and I never would have guessed. Not in my pantry. Good photo!

#3 -- I did guess it, but you sneakily changed the recipe name! You'd make a good magician, deflecting attention...

#3, and yes, but not that color.

# 3 I know this one!

My family and I were way out front on this. We've been eating it for 25 years, and are so tickled by all the "new" interest in this wonderful food.

#3, but as others I was completely stumped by the photo. mine doesn't look like that but than again I don't think I have ever looked that closely!

#3 - always in my pantry (I'm Peruvian, and although I don't live in Peru I always have it and try to cook it in different ways for guests). Love making a risotto-style dish with this ingredient too. As well as sushi/maki rolls.
