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…
Something handy for the day after Christmas, ‘How to Make a Spicy Mole Out of Leftover Turkey’. Woman selling spices in small shop in Bundi, India.
Tumeric for sale in the market at Inle Lake, Myanmar. (See more of this colourful market.) Mustard seeds and saffron for the oven-roasted cauliflower, Middle-Eastern style. (This dish was served with Peppercorn Steak in one of my World Spices Cooking classes.)
Leo beer helps cool spicy Thai food but sugar actually does a slightly better job. (How to Navigate a Thai Menu Using Chile Ratings and Condiments.)
