#3. I have some, but it's not in my pantry.
: )

Not Crisco? Not mashed potatoes? I peeked at the clue -- #3, of course!
(Have to make that soup now.)

This is something I always have on hand!

Hmmm...I swear it's #2 and I always have it on hand, but clearly I'm outnumbered. Go figure!

3! Always have a few on hand

3. As someone else said, I have it. But not in my pantry.

It could be #1 as a substitute ingredient but also #3. What will be next Lydia, after Z? Can't wait!! I must try recipe #2 since I have lots of peaches and your muffins sound yummy! -d-

If it's the #3 I think it is, then that's the stuff I make two quarts of every week! But I'm thrown off by Sara's comment - "a few" - seems like a different measurement unit for what I'm thinking of!



I don't think we have any in the pantry right at this moment but we usually keep some in the fridge. I like it with my muesli.
