The salad shooter fad was all over when I finally bought one. I love putting carrots in them and shooting the thin circles of carrot into the pot. Carrots sliced thin taste better.

A couple weeks ago I finally used the blade that shreds. I produced shredded carrots for carrot bread. It was good too.

About dried basil, Steve. There used to be a spice store near me, next door to the natural foods store, with its sagging floors and dingy walls. The spice store seemed to acquire a degree of sincereness via osmosis.

One day I was there searching an elusive curry powder with flowery accents. I made the mistake of smelling the big jar that held the powder. Ewuuu! I don't think they had washed it for years. I tried smelling others jars, and it was the same story. The new product was probably all right, but the stuff stuck at the bottom...moldy-smelling and caked on.   

Maybe you hate dried basil, Steve, because you once got some of that stuff from the bottom of the jar. I use dried basil often, and it's fine, but I buy it in little jars from the supermarket.

After a while there was a fire in that building, and the grocery store and spice store never came back. And finally I found the wonderful curry powder. It is S&B Oriental Curry Powder, and it is made in Tokyo. Comes in a red metal can. A Chinese friend helped me find it.
