* A-Z Challenge: T and U

I was in a precious one’s house where a delicious Indian meal was being prepared.  It was no problem for her to find me foods and spices for the letters T and U.  I wish you could smell the photos!

You might be wondering about that little white blob next to the Tamarind.  It’s my nephew Christopher’s Tooth.  As we worked through our tutoring session, Christopher nibbled on a granola bar and unexpectedly spit a glob onto the table.  I cried, “What is that?” and he4 answered causally, “My tooth!”  He was unperturbed and I grabbed a baggie.

Have you eaten Ume-Shisho or Umeboshi?  And how much does one household need???   Thankfully, enough for me to photograph.
