    Oh, thanks for the tip about eggplant easily replacing meat, Kitty. I like to grill once or twice a month and it’s more efficient to grill extra food and freeze it for later. Why waste the perfect coals for just one meal?

    Ever since your April 5th demonstration and book signing at Le Creuset, I’ve been using Turmeric in everything I can think of. Some people buy capsules of Turmeric to both prevent and treat Alzheimer’s and heart conditions. I researched it on the internet and found that those cultures that use Turmeric and Curry have very low incidence of those health problems.

    It’s so much more fun to make rice, vegetables and broths vibrant yellow and know that it’s an Ayurvedic herbal medicine, as well.

    Our spice drawer IS a medicine drawer 🙂

    You are right, Alicia, about our spice drawer doubling as a medicine cabinet! So many spices have health benefits: cinnamon, cayenne pepper, cumin, ginger, and saffron. In southern Morocco, mint tea is sometimes flavored with a pinch of saffron (and is supposed to be an aphrodisiac!) I often make te de canela, cinnamon tea, a Mexican beverage: Boil 2 sticks of cinnamon in 4 cups water until water turns amber color. Add 1 more cup cold water (to “fix” the color), and bring tea back to a low boil. Discard cinnamon sticks. Chill. And cinnamon is supposed to be good for lowering cholesterol!

    The Medicinal Herbal by Penelope Ody (Dorling Kindersley, 1993) is a lovely book on the subject of herbs and spices.

    Keep on cooking!
