Section 9: Confections: Items 927 - 1001

Please note that I have linked as many of the 1001 to links on the web, such as wikipedia (those that have links are underlined). I have also indicated in italics and bold, the ones that I have tried. I anticipate over the course of the year, writing about each ingredient, but for the purpose of these lists, I felt that a general list was probably the best.

Confections: 49/73 Tasted - 67%

Yippee!! Over 50%. Feels so ridiculous that I am excited about this, but there you go. Also kind of interesting that the ones that I haven't tried are all primarily from India or the Middle East and are all quite bizarre. I think that I foresee a trip to the local Indian supermarket in my future!

I also just jotted down the honey's on the list as I have just run out and what a better excuse to try one of the new ingredients than an actual need? I think that I'll hit Whole Foods, as they tend to have a ton of honey's and jams. I'll let you know how it goes.

Happy Tasting!
