    It's not too disimilar to harissa paste but has nuts, pomegranate and slightly different spices. At least, judging by the one from my new local turkish store. Good stuff.

Which is simpler, dealing with import legislation or just sewing seed pouches into my clothes and booking a flight? I swear the government overcomplicates everything.

    Or you can swallow seeds whole and dig them out of the toilet bowl...

    Given that science's best guess on the reason for capsaicin evolution is that pepper seeds can't survive mammalian digestive systems, I'm going to have to veto that one.

    Looks dangerous. You should probably mail it to me for proper disposal. :D

    What's happening to the world? While they waste time taking our harmless seeds, they are letting worse things under their noses!

    As long as they don't let those killer bees in I guess they're doing something worthwhile but I'm certainly not a fan.

Been fooling around with cinnamon extract and came up with a delicious crumble recipe. I won't post it here because it's not chilli but you can certainly have the link: https://spicefreakblog.wordpress.com/2017/02/28/stunningly-cinnamon

    If your beverages aren't spicy then you're not trying hard enough! Consider that a hint at a future recipe ;).

    Nah, thought that's what I was feeling after walking 1.5 miles with 60 litres of compost. Turns out I might just be horribly ill.

    That's an awesome page there Spice! I never knew you were into Physics. Still working on the package, got the customs forms filled out.

    Have to agree with that one. I was taking heavy history and Archaeology along side of the physics. I think I liked the archaeology better.

Got some "long pepper" for christmas. Very interesting earthy flavour with black pepper and other notes to it. Damn hot for something that's not chilli. Full review will be on my blog in the next couple months.
