After having lived in Andalusia, I found this jar of chochos picantes very amusing. Please like me on Facebook!
Pajunia in Elmhurst doesn’t serve savory jeon pancakes but it does have extremely delicious hotteok! This Korean winter treat is filled with cinnamon, honey, walnuts, sesame seeds, brown sugar and crushed peanuts. You can get 4 of these sweet, buttery filled “nut cakes” for $5.

While hiking in the Hudson River Valley, just an hour outside of New York City, we came across few wild wineberry bushes. Wineberries are a species of raspberry with origins in eastern Asia. They have very large, hairy calices, as you can see in the photo. A man we met on the trail told us that these berries were once used to make wine, since grapes do not grow well in this region.
The man at Patel Bros. grocery in Jackson Heights, Queens told me they didn’t have any green chili powder or lime powder, but they did have this powdered mint chutney mix. The first ingredient was salt, perfect for a batch of potato chips!
I loved yesterday’s lettuce popsicles so much that I stopped by the supermarket today to pick up some vegetables for another batch. This time I liquefied a few perfectly ripe tomatoes with the juice of 6 lemons and a little simple syrup. The resulting popsicles came out even better than the lettuce ones!
