Omani Breakfast Tea


In most Omani homes, a cup of this tea is an essential breakfast item. So, I obliged. I only had some black tea, so I used that. Big mistake. Riley asked, "What kind of tea is this, Mom?" Oh, I just had some black tea. "Wait, you're giving us caffeine and sugar before we go to school?!?" Yes. 

He is so my child. He is my rule-follower. Dylan, on the other hand...

3 C water
3 T organic granulated sugar
2 t loose tea
1 t ground cardamom)
1-1/2 C milk

Put the water, sugar and tea into a teapot and bring to a boil over high heat. Boil for 2–3 minutes. Add the milk and ground cardamom. Bring it to a boil again. Then immediately remove from heat and strain into a mug. Enjoy piping hot.

  3. Surely nice article. I have read it carefully and benefited from it so much. Thanks. I also like tea, but I like Oolong Tea better. I suggest you to write more about oolong tea and that will surely attract more visitors.

  4. My boyfriend brought yesterday some tea with cardamon from Oman. I had it with milk. I believe it to be: oolong, cardamon and a flower... he said cammomile, but it seems more like violets to me. It's absolutely delicious!! If I can't find it anywhere, I plan to give it a try, mixing the ingredients myself, because I cannot see the jar he brought lasting too long :-)
    In a previous trip, I tried cardamon in a different type of tea in Marrakesh, which I enjoyed a lot, but this late one is far superior.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!
