IF & WHEN you're a guest in someone's home, pack If & When Cumin Garlic Preserved Meyer Lemon Paste and make guacamole. Say nothing until your hosts taste the paste in this green goodness and comment: "Wow!" "It's delicious, different..." or "Why doesn't my guacamole taste like this?" Then tell them your secret. Or not.
2-3 TBS Cumin Garlic Preserved Meyer Lemon Paste
1 clove garlic (medium)
1 jalapeno (big)
1 bunch fresh cilantro
Juice from 1/2 lime (have the rest on hand)
Finely chop the garlic and cilantro.
Combine the garlic with all ingredients except cilantro.
Blend, blend, blend by hand until avocado is as smooth as you like it (we like chunky-smooth, but that's us)
Taste. Does it need more paste? More lime juice? Play.
Mix in 1/3 of the cilantro.
Garnish with another 1/3 cilantro and serve.
