Cinnamon is perhaps the most versatile of all spices complimenting meals from breakfast e.g. Bircher Müsli and Smoothie Bowls, to savoury dishes and post-dinner desserts, baked treats, chai and coffee ☕️ Cinnamon stems from the bark of the cinnamon🌳. Cassia and Ceylon are the most popular types where Cassia Cinnamon from Indonesia has a more pungent flavour than its milder, fruitier counterpart "Ceylon" Cinnamon typically from Sri Lanka - formerly known as Ceylon.
Cinnamon is high in fibre and calcium, contains iron and magnesium and has powerful antioxidants that assist in controlling blood sugar. 💥 Power to cinnamon!
Despite the benefits, it is for its warming, sweet and mildly spicy flavour that I love to cook with it. I’ll use cinnamon whenever frying onions to bring out their natural sweetness... and to let the house smell like something delightful is about to happen in the kitchen 😜 Cinnamon is a staple in Indian curries as well as the spicy-sweet Cape Malay Cuisine of my home country 🇿🇦. Its also a great accompaniment to Rum cocktails 🍸 and may not be missing in an Indian "chai" or German "Glühwein" •

This interesting spice has a very sweet, buttery aroma whilst being cooked but offers a slightly bitter, burnt flavour to dishes. Very often found in Indian and Middle Eastern dishes. #herbsandspices #fenugreek #SimplyVeeTee

The Little Duck
By Donald C. Babcock
Now we are ready to look at something pretty special.
It is a duck riding the ocean a hundred feet beyond the surf.
No, it isn’t a gull.
A gull always has a raucous touch about him.
This is some sort of duck, and he cuddles in the swells.
He isn’t cold, and he is thinking things over.
There is a big heaving in the Atlantic,
And he is part of it.
He looks a bit like a mandarin, or the Lord Buddha meditating under the Bo tree.
But he has hardly enough above the eyes to be a philosopher.
He has poise, however, which is what philosophers must have.
He can rest while the Atlantic heaves, because he rests in the Atlantic.
Probably he doesn’t know how large the ocean is.
And neither do you.
But he realizes it.
And what does he do, I ask you. He sits down in it.
He reposes in the immediate as if it were infinity—which it is.
That is religion, and the duck has it.
He has made himself a part of the boundless, by easing himself into it just where it
touches him. 💗💗 perfect!
Idea for dinner. Make a quick marinade, I used a pestle and mortar to grind herbs and spices and for this one I used dried rosemary with a little salt and pepper, then crushed in a clove of garlic, added a tsp of Dijon mustard and the juice of 1/4 large juicy lemon. Spread the marinade over both sides of the lamb and leave for about an hour before cooking in a heavy cast iron @lecreusetau
is my preferred frying pan. Once the lamb was cooked I put that aside and deglazed the pan with a half a glass of Shiraz (Syrah) wine to create a little sauce. Served with parsnips and beans tossed in a little butter and a glass of the Moon Bridge Shiraz. Quick to make and plate scraping delicious 😋 dinner

Name that herb! Can you guess all eight? 🌻🍃🌱🌷🎍🍇Our products contain a high concentration of essential oils and herb blends. Herbs like rose, lavender, rosemary, turmeric, cayenne, boswellia, and neem are things great for more than cooking and potpourri. According to Soffer, Neem is also a great herb for hair. “Oil made with neem helps with acne, leaves a healthy shine on your hair, and carries an antibacterial property that helps with dandruff,” she says.
Am currentky lying on my bed randomly gagging feeling sick to my stomach... i bought this turning spice rack for my spices on saturday in a charity shop for £1.50. It had no jars and i thought i had some... they were too big.
So i thought and thunk and came uo with baby food jars, condiment jars, tiny jam jars then thought of fish and meat paste jars.....never eaten it and never will after this!
I went food shopping to @aldiuk
today and found these for 27p each, brilliant as i need 16 jars... bargin!
Then the realisation struck tonight that id need to empty them to run the glass jars through the dishwasher... i had to scrape out the contents of each and every one into a bowl so i could take it and flush it.
I started out thinking this isnt too bad, smells like cat food, i have a cat.... got a few jars in and realised that the scrapings would only come out if loosened by hot water.... the smell intensified.
I got to 12 before I gagged and had to flush the bowl down the loo... took 3 seperate lots and flushes.
Then i had the last 4 jars.... it seemed to take the same amount of time as the 12! Peeling off the plastic, undoing it and scraping it out and running it under the tap.
Then once done i still had to empty and load the dishwasher AND wash the lids... so the smell of that and the mint and lemon disinfectant spray... again from @aldiuk
made me gag even more!! Its done now and the herbs and spices (mostly from @aldiuk
) will look great and be easy access for this disabled lady... at least i know i can get my teaspoon in the jar... but how the hell anyone can eat that stuff is beyond me!! #ohmy #spoonie #fibromyalgia #arthritis #herbsandspices
Back home, the monsoon season or Karkidakam is a tough month. Traditionally, it was defined by poverty and scarcity; a time when kerala's agrarian society and its vast majority toiled in the paddy fields, hoping, nay praying, for a bountiful harvest.
It was also a time for people to protect themselves from seasonal illnesses; To rest, recooperate and rejuvenate.
Days would often begin with home brewed herbal tisanas to detoxify and alkalise the body; The meals were spartan, simple, easier to digest, medicinal even to restore gut health naturally. People ventured out less, preferring to spend time within the confines of their homes, reading, praying and tending to themselves as well as their loved ones. The month is infact called the Ramayan Month since many would manage to complete reading the mythological epic poem Ramayanam during this month.
I was fortunate to have spent a week at home this monsoon season, being dosed with my mother's herbal brews and fed nourishing homecooked meals. The picture here is a shot of my mother's morning brew consisting of the ancient, sacred grass Darbha with a motley crew of spices. Darbha, also called Kusha, has been referenced since the vedic times for its powerful spiritual and healing properties. The brew is hot, mildly spicy but comforting and perfect for the cold rainy mornings. It is the taste of home during the monsoons. ❤
