Recipe #3 has this ingredient in it Lydia. When I am in the States I buy the larger cans.

#3 :)
I made a soup with this ingredient once... it seemed to cause the soup to ferment (thus exploding when the container was opened) which earned it the title of "The Angry Soup". Didn't do so well in that recipe, but I do still keep some on hand since I love the flavour so!


C, one of my favorite ingredients, I probably would have put some in all three recipes.

#3. I love hot sauce with this flavor!

Definitely #3. Love this ingredient!!

Yes, 3. But you are opening up old posts, and every one of them is worth revisiting and saving (on Delicious, so helpful!).

#3 - one of my favorite flavors!

3! I keep these guys in my freezer all the time!

Definitely C ! Yes, I have this in my pantry...always : )

I agree with everyone else, 3. But I espeecially agree with susan g... what a fun way to peruse older posts!

#3 and yes i do have these in my pantry!

I am guessing C. I never buy this, but I do buy this ingredient in a different form.

Number three, even though when I first looked at the recipe names I was positive the other two had them in the recipes!


Number 3! I always have it in my pantry, and now my sister in Germany has to have it, too:) It is an amazing ingredient!
BTW, I LOVE this new series:) Have a great weekend1

Yes, number 3, and I have it in my pantry.

finally one I could recognize from the pic- I feel so smart!
and I can only use it in small increments since we have "baby mouths" around here! I just freeze unused portions!

3. I am never without at least one can. Yum.

Lydia, you are diabolically clever, leading us back to previous recipes! I just made "Quick and Easy Black Beans and Rice," which I saw as I perused some of your entries. It was delicious - and as easy as promised. Thank you!

3 Yes I like bcs we can visit other recipes in our search Great idea thanks

number 3. I don't have any like this in my pantry right now but use it often... and I have another form of it.
