ABC Wednesday: Z is for Zing

If you like your food to have zing, add zesty spices. I mixed spices that were photogenic for the shot below, so I used them on zero or zilch foods as they would probably be pretty nasty all dumped together randomly.

That's a lovely pestle & mortar for grinding spices ! This is the traditional Hindu way of doing it !

Ah heck! You should have given it a go just for the fun of it. Great idea for our Z week! See you next round, I hope!

I agree with Leslie - should have tried it on chicken or something mild - you never know what next great spice mixture is out there!

As I get older I find I need a little more zing to my food, -- but not pepper. I used to love pepper, now it almost asphyxiates me. (Should have kept that word for next week.)

for myself and my innards, that would be too zingy for me! but it does make for a zesty image!

Gillian Olson said...

Ah I love zesty zingy foods, the mortar and pestle makes a great shot Carver.

I think I can identify some of the spices! Great shot to illustrate zesty zing!

I would love to know which spices are combined in your colourful shot. I like a little zing to my food as well. This was a fun read. Thanks, Carver!

Love a good mortar and pestle. Used to have a coffee grinder dedicated to nothing but coffee... then my ex used it to quick-mix curry spices, and that was that, ha ha.

Loved the shot as well, the way you can see the pods and leaves, not just the final powder. Great! Amy
