Number 2, and yes I have it in my pantry!

Number 2, not a common pantry item, but well worth exploring. I just happen to have a bottle...and I share.

#2 - no i do not have this, yet.

Okay. I have no clue. But I'm going with #2 because everyone else is.

#2 -- Well, I made it once (recipe in the Time-Life series, Foods of the World. I have something like it which is Vietnamese, but not with that name. (Anyone know what that is?)

Usually I know before I look at the recipes but not a clue today. I'm going with #2. I'll have to get some and try it.

#2 as well. I guess it's one more flavor I'll need to try :-)

I do not have this in my pantry, but now I want some! I think it is recipe #2

#2. My husband is Dutch so Indonesian food is big in our household. I used it for Indonesian Pilaf and several Dutch recipes. YUM!

You really stumped me on this one, Lydia. Had to look. Have never seen this - anywhere. #2 and good on you! :-)

I usually try to guess before I look at the recipes, too. But holy cow. I've never heard of #2 before. Gotta cheat to see!

If I had been the first one here I could not have guessed. This is an ingredient I've never cooked with.

Number 2 - I don't have it in my pantry but it sounds like I need to!

I see you've been visiting my near neighbours, #2 for me.

When I looked at the photo I guessed something that it definitely is not because one would not find it in any one of these recipes. But now I want it!

#2, don't have it but now I want it!

2 - Love it!

#2 but I looked over all the recipes to figure it out- never had this one!
