    This is my attempt at Madnakash ~ flat bread I love ~ not very close ~ maybe next time ~ ladled on is ~ pepper paste from a jar Auntie Diana left with us ~ on the label it claims to be Antap Pepper ~ not hot ~ but rich in flavor ~ this I will eat with a glass or two or ~`` ( Antap or Antab is a city ` now in turkey )
    I can still hear ~ at picnics , when I was little, ~ Uncle George saying: " Antapzi pilov is greasy again " ~ they're great, fun loving people ~ they from Antap ```

    Very nice ~ I admit ~ the Komidas ~ turned my head ~ but ~ I think it OK ~ on this one occasion ```

    i have some jars of an Indian (the country) garlic pickle i made and put it away in the closet thinking i would get a jar out once in a while and eat it. forgotten it because it was buried under other things.

    i tasted some yesterday, kinda wary because it's been a while since i made it. it actually turned out well and seems to have stored ok, as i'm not dead today... i fed the remainder of the jar to the three worm buckets i was in yesterday replenishing their food stores.

    i have some old jars of concord grape jam i will feed instead. the garlic pickle i keep and eat. main ingredient is garlic, others are yellow raisins, dates, onion, roasted mustard, roasted fenugreek and some other things i can't recall, but it is a fair approximation of what we bought at the store the brand was Pataks Garlic Pickle. it is great spread on bread. like you say. very complex flavors and satisfying.

    brandy would put me under the table.

    enjoy. :)
