    Thanks again for a fabulous class! The two spices I found at Penzey’s are Ajwain (recommended to temper the effects of a legume based diet), and Kala Jeera (characterized as an exotic, flowery seed sprinkled lightly on fish, chicken, or vegetables.)

      Donna! I had a blast with you guys! I hope to do another one soon. Ajwain is great!! I have played around very little with Kala jeera but I really want to explore more of it. Maybe it could be a new project! I am excited.
