Just So You Know . . .

This is how I make guacamole: I put a generous handful of whole cumin seeds into a dry frying pan and turn the heat on to medium high. While the cumin seeds are roasting, I scoop out three or four ripe avocados into a bowl (don't mash them right away!), add the juice of one lime or the juice of half a lemon, and a teaspoon of course sea salt. When the cumin seeds are slightly brown, I dump them on top of the other ingredients in the bowl, appreciate the sizzle, and then I mash it all together with a potato masher . . . don't use a food processor, or you'll overwork it, you'll kill its spirit. Now, where are the chips?
