Thread Name: BS: What are your favourite cooking spices?
Subject: RE: BS: What are your favourite cooking spices?
There's this stuff that looks like oregano but you can smoke it or put it in brownies or...oops, recipes from my college days. Sorry.

Try some of the various blends -- we have a lime-pepper blend that's great. Just read the labels and check for salt (NaCl) content.

Also, try some Tiger Sauce from TryMe products. It's a different hot sauce in that you don't seem to be able to use it in anything where it won't work. Like all hot sauces, start small and work up.

Wanna impress the hell out of people? Makes up some little meatballs (if you use your hands you should wash them first) and put them in a crockpot (slow cooker). Pour in equal parts of cheap beer and tomato catsup (or ketchup -- either is fine). Let is cook for about eight hours while you do something else. Every so often skim off the grease and give it a stir. Serve as a whores d'over or over noodles or rice. Tell everyone it's a secret family recipe passed down through the generations and was brought to the New World centuries ago by Skarpi's ancestors, who left the recipe scrawled on a rock at Anse Aux Meadows or whatever the name of that place is.
