#1. I don't have it in my pantry at the moment, but one never knows when it might show up.

1, but you were tricky this week!

Tricky, Lydia, tricky! #1. Nice photo, by the way.

#1 (That was sneaky of you).

#1- I have three brands of it...and now you have made me want to make this recipe!

Number 1
I love this ingredient and use it a lot!

1 -- finally, for 2 weeks, I could identify it from the photo.

I have a SW version, but I don't know what to do with it!

I would have never guessed this one without checking the recipes! And I don't have any right now.

#1 & yes, I do.

#1 and yes, a big bag! Love it!

#1 - although for me it's a guess - the ingredient I'm thinking of isn't available here and I've never actually seen it!

#1 and I just tossed out a very old half-used packet of it. Guess I don't use it that much. Would go buy more to make that recipe though!

#1 - I have never used it but hopefully will someday soon. Thanks for the photo.

#1, and duh (recognized the ingredient right away, btw).

1. I always have this in my pantry - it's good for so many things!

#1. It's always in my pantry.

#1 I even had an argument with a chef once about the gluten-free status of this ingredient. (It's not gf, course.)


#1, have it and other kinds too.

Just a comment, when I was reading through the recipes and got to the codfish cakes made me think of my recipes. My father was a transplant to Northern Wisconsin from Boston. We grew up on baked beans, creamed codfish , cheese rarebit, probably seafood at least 2 x a week. Christmas Eve was always scalloped oysters. So good. Don't make these all very often as have to add in favorite foods too from husband's childhood, new favorites for children.

3 and yes, I do have it in my pantry

tricky, tricky, tricky!

1, of course. Recently bought a gorgeous piece of fish in a (French Canadian) market in Grenada. Proprietor/chef didn't want to sell me the fish unless I had some of this on hand on our boat. I didn't, Di he sold me a Baggie of his!
