Where can I buy authentic Spanish chorizo please?

in the Bay Area, South Bay, go to Lunardi's in Los Gatos.

Tea-Infused Vermouth

I would suggest using 3/4 of the 1 liter bottle. That's 750 mL. Bonnie 8a

Azafran in Mexico

I also bought some Azafran in Guadalajara recently. It looked like a saffron version of ginger -- orange bulb, but less gnarly than ginger, and much smaller. Like the size of a child's finger. It was in an upscale grocery store, and the provedor told me I can use it like regular saffron. I will try it tonight. Mine doesn't look like large pepper corns, though. I am also curious to plant it and see if I get a crocus plant from it. Bonnie
