Re: What is Your Favorite Seed?

Unlike the pineapples peppercorns don't go off. Rot etc..

As to the heroin, depends on who "we" is

But really, it was not different than gold. Not minted currency, but of an imperishable (for the most part) with defined value.

You've got me reading Waverly Root on the peppercorn as currency now.

Re: What is Your Favorite Seed?

I don't really have a favorite.

Although I have heard it said that if you want to curry favor...you should favor curry.

Re: What is Your Favorite Seed?

I had a hard time with the choices, so I went with the classic black peppercorn (which is technically the whole fruit, not just the seed). But the great thing about spices are the combinations, so it's hard to pick one. Cumin without coirander? I refuse!

Also barley, in its drinkable applications.

I like chewing on sunflower seeds.

Also, no pumpkin seeds? This time of year I love throwing the seeds collected from my carved pumpkin innards into the oven.

I really only use cumin regularly, but I voted for poppy seeds because of posto.

You will not force me to choose only one.

Also, the word "superfood" is one of my biggest Idiot Alarms.

Peppercorns are ubiquitous. Honorable mention goes to cumin for enchilada gravy and chili, and sesame seeds for sushi, and hamburger buns.

Douchey buzzword "superfoods" also include quinoa and millet. One is birdseed and the other just tastes like it.

I love pumpkin seeds.

Right time of year for it. Gotta love shoving your hand into that muck to pull them out.

Voted cumin, but I wouldn't want to be out of black pepper or caraway seeds for very long, either.

Sesame and poppy seeds are good to have, but it's not a crisis if I run out. Haven't had a sunflower seed in I'm not sure how long, and have no use at all for chia seeds.

Re: What is Your Favorite Seed?

We don't have those big orange pumpkins that you carve here. We don't carve pumpkins. Pumpkin is eaten all year round at least as much as potatoes though. Readily available we have..

Jap Pumpkin



Blue Pumpkin (the most common)



And Butternut Pumpkin




Generally the only place you can buy pumpkin seeds to eat is a health food store, they aren't really eaten here. I've made them a few times from one of these pumpkins.
