Jellie’s Food Wishlist

This is my food wishlist, or an ingredients bucket list if you will! Some of the items in this wishlist are difficult/impossible to get in Canada (sahlab), others I just haven’t gotten around to trying (breadfruit), and still others are products that intrigue me and for which I am praying for a decent vegan substitute (labneh).

Once I’ve tried something on the list, I will cross it out and add a link to the post describing my thoughts on it!
