Yesterday I bought fresh ginger and garam masala for the first time, for chicken tikka masala. It must be fate - just a day or two before the magazine came in, someone had posted a chicken tikka masala recipe on Facebook. I plan to make the Cook's Country version because it's lower in fat. Can't wait to get to it, because the garam masala smells fabulous - looking forward to using it in LOTS of things, not just this.
Next project, however, will be applesauce from a few aging apples. I love it - ever so easy, and it makes the house smell oh, so good!
