Hello food lovers!

I have a bit of a food mystery here…I have some wonderful friends who travel the world, and when they go somewhere they come back home with spices from their vacation destination. They have acquired so many spices over the past few years, that they had an overload, and thought to send some of their extras to me. I received a huge box of exotic (to me) spices in the mail some weeks back. Some I have shared with foodie friends I have gone to visit in the past month or so, and I have been fun experimenting with the rest.

There was however, one item in the box that I was not familiar with and when I asked my friend about it, he told me that they are organic day lillies from Taiwan and that they are usually used in rice or meat dishes. The only characters that I could understand on the bag says: “ciharaay”.

Even with that information I have remained perplexed about what to do with them. So, I thought it would be fun to do a little experiment with my fellow food bloggers. If you are feeling adventurous and would like to cook with these flowers, please leave a comment here. The first 3 people to leave a comment or anyone who leaves a comment on this post before Thursday (which ever comes first), will get some of these flowers in the mail from me and can feel free to create a dish using these lovely flowers :) All I ask in return is that you post about your own experiment, whether it is a success or failure, so we can all learn something new.
