Yes, I've been  reading through recipes from the Ni'matnama (Book of
Delights) from north India...Mughal.  I find a LOT of the recipes call for
both camphor and musk.  What do you guys do when you find something like
this?  Do you try to find edible versions of these ingredients (tried it
once for musk and could only find the chemical version used in perfumes, and
definitely inedible)?  Or maybe you've figured out a substitute(s) that
gives a similar taste...or do you just omitted it all together?  Any
suggestions would be appreciated as some of these recipes really fit what
I'm trying to do for my ME feast in February.


PS:  It's good to be back!!
