Herbs & Spices:
Dill: Seeds and leaves of dill are flavorful. I get the dried leaves ground, seeds are okay if you are going to cook them. I like to put dill in salads - lettuce or potato salad. Good in soups, cabbage or fish.
Ginger: A pungent root. This aromatic spice is sold fresh, dried, or ground. Used in pickles, preserves, cakes, Asian dishes, cookies. Fresh ginger is bought as a root, and is grated in small amounts such as 1/2 tsp. or 1 tsp. I use it when making egg rolls.
Oregano: Strong aromatic odor, use whole or ground to spice in tomato juice, fish, eggs, pizza, omelets, chili, stew, gravy, spaghetti, and vegetables. I like it best in Italian dishes.
1/2 cup sugar
3 Tbls. cornstarch
1/2 tsp. salt
4 eggs separated
3 cups milk
2 Tbls. butter
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 to 3/4 cup toasted coconut is desired (optional)
Separate eggs, putting whites in medium size bowl to whip when custard is thickened, then to be added and cooked two minutes longer, stirring all the time. In a heavy pan place sugar, cornstarch, salt. 4 egg yolks, and milk. Place over medium heat, using whisk, stir and boil until thickened. Turn heat down very low or remove from heat just long enough to whip egg whites into peaks. Cook on medium heat for two minutes, be sure it is hot and bubbly. Turn heat off and add butter and vanilla, stir in well. If you want the toasted coconut stir that in, then put in small dishes or large bowl, cover and chill for 2 hours or more. To toast the coconut just put in dry skillet on medium heat and stir every minute until starts to brown. This removes moisture and keeps coconut from clumping in a bunch. Remember, custard is not quite as thick as pudding, just add more cornstarch if you like.

And one of them, when he saw that he was healed,
turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, And fell down on his face at his feet giving him thanks; and he was a Samaritan.
And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?
