Click to hear the answers to questions from mysterious listeners like 'Culinary Jane of Deadwood,' who writes: "My husband just won't listen. I ask him to buy some thyme, cumin seed, etc. and he goes to the local supermarket and buys these bottled spices - when he knows he should get them from the natural food store in bulk, which are fresher, cheaper, better."

Jezebel Jones asks: "Can a jar of spaghetti sauce actually be any good?"

Bathsheba Barnes wants to know: "At the grocery store, there's a huge, long aisle, full of flour. Why are there so many kinds?"
