NIGHT 308 – THE STORY OF ALI SHAR AND ZUMURRUD

Peppa pigment

Mentioned in the 1001 Arabian Nights

Cubebs (as part of a recipe for fertility) (not a pigment – as far as I know, might be)

They taste lovely!

Has anyone ever tried these? I’d like to cook a whole medieval dinner based on miniature painting at some point! Like Heston Blumenthal did with the Vivendier but with eastern dishes. With this as a possible addition

From the inimitable Notting Hill Spice Shop

(Also, I have to use these up now – sitting at the back of the kitchen cupboard and now expired / am sure is fine)
