Back to The Never Cooked With List

Well, I haven't been keeping up with my ingredient wish list for a while...high time I got back to it. :-)

-----Barley Malt Syrup. The best way to use it is along with other natural sweeteners...I do not know which sweeteners I will use it with yet.
-----Bay scallops...or any scallops. Some of the people on "Hell's Kitchen" make cooking them seem like Rocket Science. They ARE finally starting to get close to affordable and that is cool!
-----Bean sprouts. I have eaten them but I have not cooked with them.
-----Black sesame seeds
-----Cashew butter. I have now had it on toast but not used it as an ingredient. Not strongly nutty...even a little think it is going to add up to oily but it doesn't. Aldi's now carries cashew butter.
-----Chevre (goat's cheese). I can't remember what but I have now used this blended into several dishes. We liked the cheese to be herbed.
-----Chipotle Tabasco
-----Curry powder. Now used in all sorts of ways.
-----Dark sesame oil
-----Dry mustard. I keep it on hand regularly now.
-----Enoki mushrooms.Mild.Crunch. Used for soups and stir fries.
-----Fried squash blossoms. I have a bottle of canned pumpkin blossoms in the cupboard that I need to figure out what to do with.
-----Garlic Tobaseco
-----Gray Salt
-----Ground Szechuan Peppercorns
-----Halloumi cheese
-----Haricot Vert. French green beans. We have cooked with this and now want to start growing them.
-----Hoisin sauce
-----Hotel Bar Butter. Part of New York cuisine for over a century. I think I first heard of it when reading "Julie& Julia."
-----Kelp. It is supposed to increase thyroid function...I have several thyroid problems.

Post-in-progress. :-)
