Wasabi is like super hot horseradish. My experience of using it to make sushi - you rub a bit on the seaweed or rice to make the fishy bit stick on. Or you mix with soy sauce to dip things in. It is blardy hot mind. One tube would last me a long time! Dill is herb - mainly cooked with fish I think. Not so sure on the weed bit! Not sure about the value thing. If you do a lot of asian cooking, I'm sure it is cheaper to stock up on the herbs and spices than buy ready made sauces for example.
cheers, was just curious as I only pop in for bits & pieces occasionally n thought I'd have a proper look around today. Plus moondog suggested something to try earlier but wasn't sure about the wasabi sauce. will it keep if I buy a tin & only use it for me? oh isn't keen on anything raddishey (sp?) or horseraddishey (sp again?)
He doesn't seem the particularly friendly type Maureen, spends all his time in there stood looking mean n moody behind the counter. Poor bloke, he's only young n he's the only staff member I've ever seen in there!
