|Raiding Other People's Cultures for Snacks: Report 716A
||[Jul. 23rd, 2011|03:29 pm]
The Persian grocery on University yielded:
Spiced almonds: tasty and zingy; must buy some for Dad.
Spiced pistachios: spice not really strong enough, but tasty due to being less oversalted than most in-shell pistachios in supermarkets.
Pomegranate fruit leather: tasted like a red Fruit Roll-Up. I read the label, and it had all the usual fruit leather things in it and none of the nasty high-fructose whatevers and artificial whosits. So if you like red Fruit Roll-Ups but are trying to avoid whatevers and whosits, hie yourself on over to the Persian grocery and get pomegranate fruit leather.
Tamarind fruit leather: tasted like holycrudtamarind. So much tamarind. If you get cravings for tamarind, and you want semi-shelf-stable stuff, this stuff is the answer.
Still to taste: sour cherry fruit leather (gosh I hope it's really sour), some kind of berry I've never had before fruit leather.
