I have a very weak stomach when it comes to bad smells. A vile smell will turn my stomach so badly that I’m likely to be ill. I’m usually able to remove myself from the situation before it becomes bad for everyone but the other day it was a close call. Dave and I were washing our friend’s dog and as I got up close and personal and took a breath, the off fish scent emanating from him made my stomach turn over. Dave had a blocked nose and he could stay and hold the dog while I walked out of the bathroom for some fresh air. On the other hand, spicy smells are always warm and inviting. As I am trying to spice up my breakfasts by adding a variety of things to my granola I decided to make some spiced dried fruit. This is really easy to make, and as at present I am having a love affair with chai spices I used a chai teabag for the liquid.
- 1 chai tea bag
- 250mls boiling water
- 2 star anise
- 1 cinnamon quill
- 2.5mls vanilla powder
- 400g soft dried fruit
