Especially nowadays when many of us are eating out a lot less...I know I am, I'm enjoying cooking more. I never disliked it, but I've been having fun trying new dishes.

So, what ingredient(s) have you been wanting to try that you recently tried OR that you'll get the next time you go to the store?

For me, it's:

tempeh - Made a BLTA wrap using this for the "bacon". It was GOOD!

dill - put some in my salad for a different flavor & will put some in a homemade salad dressing I'll make

tarragon - haven't gotten yet, but plan to!

Suan Cai: Chinese pickled mustard greens

My friend made some dan dan noodles recently, and she shared the recipe with me, and told me that this was a must have ingredient.

I am still looking for the right dan dan recipe, and I need to get some noodles, but I love most leafy greens, in most forms, so I am looking forward to using them.

.

I also put some in pho dishes. They are a good offset to rich dishes as they are very sour. They do not take over a dish like sauerkraut does. However, do not overdo it.

Tamarind paste and turmeric. I know pretty much all popular seasonings.
I also would like to try the bitter melon.

I made some yummy meatballs from a Syrian cookbook with tamarind paste and tomato!

This is in the neighborhood of the recipe.

Not one ingredient, but I made bone broth yesterday with beef neck ones and a bunch of veggies. At some point, I’ll make soup out of it.

Nice guys! Oh yes, I forgot to say dashi. It's a Japanese flavoring ingredient. I used it so far when making my (quinoa) fried rice.

I want to try rose water for baking perhaps even making fresh homemade ice cream. I saw a recipe on YouTube for a Indian dessert. I wondered where I would find rose water aside from making it myself (by planting roses and not spraying them with herbicides or roundup so I could digest them without poisoning myself) well I finally saw it a month ago at my local Harris Teeter. I’ll find the recipe again then make my purchase at the store accordingly.

There is orange blossom water too! Also you can grab them on Amazon too. I went to a restaurant that made an orange blossom soda. Delicious.

And at Persian places they often top vanilla ice cream with some rose water and maybe pistachios.
