October 30, 2009, Newsletter Issue #316: Buying Spices

Tip of the Week

I hope you have Middle East (M-E), Indian (I), or Asian (A) grocery stores fairly close to you. Here, you can buy your spices, rice, exotic vegetables and canned goods at such a savings; many at half the price youŽd pay at regular grocers. YouŽll find those special items, here, that you canŽt find elsewhere. Most Asian markets also have a bakery, where I buy 12" fresh baked French breads 5/$1.00(U.S.). I make at least one trip a month to one of these stores to purchase breads, pork tenderloin, canned coconut milk and canned straw mushrooms for Asian soups (Tom Kha Gai), curry powder, pita bread, whole cardamon, paprika, rice, and fresh lamb cuts (M-E or I) at a really good buy. Check these stores not only for good prices, but broadening your knowledge of various spices and foods.
