cant u just grow u own basil and coriander? not that difficult is it?

Yup,maybe, but not in the quantities one needs for 2 Restaurants as i have. Also my basil died always after 6 months.Got only oregano, lemon grass and some other left which seem to flourish. Soil maybe no good.

 

Also sometimes regular people don't need that much or often.

S&R has real maple syrup, if you want to pay the price.

 

Real maple syrup is expensive no matter where in the world you buy it...even is the areas where they cook down the tree sap to make it.

wansoy or yansoy is how the coriander is labelled in the supermarkets, I buy it all the time. The ingredient/rizome that I have yet to find is called galanga (kha in Thai) and is very important in (Thai) soups and. I was told it's called yellow ginger here and may be sold in Chinese medicine shops.

The basil the Thais favour is called holy basil and is different to the 'Italian" sort of taste. I now have some seeds, just need somewhere to grow it :)

It is a lot of work and a wasteful process.

I think it takes about a gallon of tree sap to make somewhere around a pint of syrup if memory serves.

I used to put it on vanilla ice cream with crushed pecans, peanuts or English walnuts.

Great stuff and once you taste the real thing, the artificial stuff tastes horrible, funny, it tastes fine up until that point.

i don't mind the fake stuff on pancakes .. but i really do prefer real.. but the fake stuff really can't be used for anything else like the real stuff it just doesn't work out at all

Too watery for one thing and too sweet because you have to add so much sugar to the "flavoring" to make it thick enough to stand up on it's own.

At least real butter is abundant here at a fairly reasonable price.

Damn it, now I want pancakes (with applesauce in the batter)!!!

The same thing works on real cakes too, also, don't add the baking powder until last (and make sure your mix is cold, not warm), it does it's best work in the first few minutes after it is added.

The UK is till quite a bit closer to the RP than Toronto is.

 

that's one thing you got right. We're an island people, just like them for whom seafaring is very important. The Japanese like us too on that basis. They're not idiots. They've noticed. The geography is similar. The Philippines is not a continual land mass like Canada, or the United States. It's a series of islands.

There should be a recipe that uses all three of those ingredients. My mom used to make waffles for us with chopped up bacon mixed into the batter. You stack three of those up with melted butter and real maple syrup and you have a meal. She would also make us a simple dessert after dinner sometimes with a waffle, a small scoop of ice cream, a liberal amount of fresh sweet whipped cream and a little melted chocolate laced over the top...OK...I'm officially hungry now. I don't think I ever had all three ingredients in one recipe though.

How on earth can you have a thread with 123 replies about what someone else is shipping to the Philippines?

 

Some people have too much spare time on their hands! lol
