Travel Theme: Spices from Around the World

Ailsa’s theme of ‘Spice’ came just as I was whipping up some Spanish-style spiced almonds as a Christmas nibble, using two tablespoons of cayenne and one of smoked Spanish paprika.

I don’t yet have photos of the almonds but here are some more spicy shots from around the world including a way to spice up your left-over turkey…
