My answer is 3

#3, and I have some split and chopped soaking in rum right now.

Oh,oh,oh...I know this one it's 3! A staple in my kitchen.

#3 - I use Singing Dog organic.

#3 and I do.

#3 of course - but add vodka and time and you can use it in #1 and #2 as well.

This time the challenge was getting the recipe on the first try, since I could see it in any of them.
#3 on the first try. Have to make some today!

I do have this one and rarely use it. Need to get with the program.

I love this one, I am making some extract right now.

I'll say 3, but could be used in 1, 2. ; )

It's 3!

are there any other "V" spices? Is that a dumb question by me? (#3 :-)

I'm with Susan; I would use it in 1 as well as 3 and probably 2 and I am rarely without it in several forms.

3. Like Kalyn, I have it around but very rarely use it.

#3, the world's 2nd most expensive spice that is now being grown in the Bay of Plenty here in NZ, and is a very successful crop in the Kingdom of Tonga.

#3 and I'm soaking some in another V - vodka!

#3. I do use it, but do not have it in my pantry at present!

Doesn't think one come up in desserts a lot?

I believe, for the first time, I actually know this one!

3, but 1 and 2 also, as all the same thing.
