    Could you add canela? It's Mexican cinnamon. The system didn't recognize it.

    Is there a reason why you can't just use cinnamon then?

    There are several different types of cinnamon, with different characteristics and levels of intensity. Mexican recipes normally call for the type used in Mexico, which is canela. It's a softer stick, so it's more easily ground than hard stick cinnamon. I'd hate to see someone trying to grind the hard stuff when the soft one is much easier to use. It's also known as Ceylon cinnamon. There is also Mexican oregano, which is not the same as Turkish or Greek oregano.

    Good morning Mary

    When an ingredient is added, does it also show up in the Kitchen Dictionary - or is that an entirely different request?

    thanks icon_smile.gif

    Regrettably, that is a seperate request. Is there something you need me to add?

    any chance you can add "Thai sweet chili sauce" to the Kitchen Dictionary?

    Hello, Mary-

    Could you add recado rojo to the ingredients' dictionary? Belizeans use achiote/annatto paste but they add all sorts of yummy spices/herbs such as cinnamon, allspice, oregano, etc. It is not just achiote paste. Each Belizean household claims to have "the best" recado rojo. My Belizean friend gave me some directly from her "source" in Belize. It was amazing!

    "A typical Belizean meal consists of stewed chicken with rice and beans, served with potato salad, and a fried plantain. You have to taste it to belize it.

    This recipe calls for Recado rojo or achiote paste, a popular Mayan blend of spices. It usually includes annatto, Mexican oregano, cumin, clove, cinnamon, black pepper, allspice, garlic, and salt. The annatto seeds dye the mixture red, and this gives the stewed chicken its distinctive red hue."

    Miss Mary, can you please add to the Kitchen Dictionary and ingredients db:

    Pickle Crisp Granules

    Pickle Crisp is a granulated form of food-grade calcium chloride intended to replace pickling lime. The directions on the container call for adding a rounded ΒΌ teaspoon to a quart jar or a rounded 1/8 teaspoon to a pint jar, along with the vegetable or fruit pieces and the pickling liquid.

    One jar will yield 80 quarts of pickles, compared to 16 quarts of pickles with one bag of lime
