Apr9 What Did I Buy? Posted on April 9, 2014 by heretherebespiders Standard I thought you might have a bit of fun figuring out what could possibly cost this much per 100 grams (that’s 3.53 ounces) , that I could still afford (and want). That’s £299, or $502USD, or €362, or $535AUD. Share the lurve!TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... Related
One of the two!
Hah! I haven’t quite lost it yet.
Pshaw. You are many many years away from losing it, or anything close to it. X
Really smelly cheese?
Does smelly cost more? Hmmm… But, no!
Don’t they have a special machine that measures the pungency and charges accordingly??? Oh well I’ll keep thinking.
I’m afraid Sledpress and AnimalCouriers both got it right – saffron! But the guess that it was powdered seahorse kidneys was awesome, too.
Ha ha. I actually picked up saffron in lidl yesterday for €1.99 as part of Easter deluxe specials. Score! No clue what I’m gonna use it for but a bargain’s a bargain!
I put it in basmati rice with a lot of other stuff. I can list it all, if you’re interested.
Definitely! I was planning on asking our Iranian friend who uses it a lot. I got some for him too!
Okay weird, I dreamt last night that I was talking about the one organic dish I can make – gormeh sabzee! Might have been the fancy rice that made me think of it. Let’s see, butter or olive oil, salt, garlic granules, fenugreek, turmeric, and whole green cardamom pods. Oh, and paprika or coarse ground black pepper. I put it all in with the water and leave it go (I learned how to make rice from an Iranian man, it never goes wrong).
Sounds amazing! And a major step up from boil in the bag! Hell, I’ll give it a go! Don’t suppose ur pal is called Farzad????
Hahahaha, no – he was an ex bf in America, half-Iranian actually. But knew how to cook a few things, and others I got from his dad. Turned out to be a psycho-nuts after a few years, the bf did…
Well out Iranian works with hubby and he’s our kinda Muslim as in he smokes and boozes! All gravy!
Ah, mine was a Jewish escapee family. It was kinda fun doing Passover dinner with them – they beat each other with leeks. I have no idea why. Oh, and sorry I don’t measure anything – just throw whatever looks right in the pot! Will your mate eat bacon?
Rice is sooo easy – and if you’ve never had basmati – get it!
We’re with sledpress, and think it might be saffron – it’s frightfully expensive but vital at times.
Yes! Points to you both 🙂 Very much a necessity!
Your problem is that you don’t read code.
I should bring my work scanner home !
There you go, then you can talk code.

Gah! No thanks! My teeth are bad enough already.
All my guesses have been taken! Saffron… Meth… My real problem is that I don’t know what 100g looks like.
With that explanation, my official guess is that you went to china town and got powdered sea horse kidneys to mix in with your tea.
You win for most creative! But it was saffron after all. I might start calling it seahorse spines now.
Oh, it wasn’t my creative imagination! Behind the registers at some grocers in Chinatown are various jars of… things. We like to generically call them all ‘powdered tiger penises’ because we can’t read the labels, but we can read the numbers!
My god, I read saffron is a spice. Now I understand why Columbus had his voyage financed by the king! Well, he was supposed to bring back spices. He brought back corn. Not bad 🙂
It is the stamens of a variety of crocus, so very few per plant. Don’t forget the potatoes!
