What wonderful foods did you bring home from the grocery store?
Midweek Munchies: What The Chocolate Lady is contributing for the week
Tiny light green lentils
Tiny dark grey-green lentils
Large light green lentils
Whole masoor dal (This is the first time I had seen whole masoor dal (red lentils) that I recall. They are usually available as peeled, split orange-pink lentils. They area deep purplish brown on the outside
Whole Mahlob (also called mahlab—-the kernels from the stones of wild black cherries. Mahlob is used to flavor breads and pastries)
3 kinds of churchkhela--almond, walnut and pistachio. I was familiar with churchkhela, which I used to call nut-candles, from Georgian cuisine. They are a string of nuts dipped in concentrated fruit juice thickened with cornstarch. That sounds very strange, I know, but they are delicious.
I was tempted by some brightly-colored orange and purple raisins--like persimons in port--but didn't get them this time--It was a lot to carry.
