Happy Herbal New Year! I have a confession to make to the Editor in Chief, K.C. Compton. KC—I, too, have spices that were gifted to me or purchased by me that I haven't used yet! They include saffron

Must be something about those magic threads that sends terror through us both!

Herbs and spices I've purchased from vacations long ago.

The spices on the left were purchased in the Antilles by friends. They include two types of curry, one called Columbo after the capital of Sri Lanka. Colombo powder is a French West Indies curry powder—a mixture of cumin, coriander, brown mustard, Malabar black pepper, cloves, fenugreek and turmeric. The package also contained cinnamon, saffron, pepper, ginger and vanilla. They have remained intact for a number of years. Haven't a clue how many! I found a Chicken Columbo with Purple Jasmine Rice recipe from Martha Stewart that I'm going to try with my Columbo powder.

I purchased the small box on the right in 2006 at El Gato Negro in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
