My Spiffy Spice Shelf by Majnouna My Spiffy Spice Shelf by Majnouna

I am somewhat obsessed with spices: learning their properties, collecting them, using them, and of course drawing them. This, then, is the spice shelf of my dreams, and close enough to the one I made for my kitchen. Of the bewildering array of spices available on the market I picked out 38 primary ones (that are not a mixture of several spices) that are stored this way (as opposed to, say, garlic, which you really want fresh) and readily available almost anywhere. Faced with the dilemma of representing them whole or ground, I put the powder in the jars and the original form on the label.

Note: If you're absolutely convinced "chilli" is an incorrect spelling you won't even look in a dictionary, don't bother commenting. I won't waste time educating you, I'll just call you a dunce and block you, as you'll have deserved.

This a question related to 'chilli'.
Please don't block me, I'm merely asking what language it comes from.
Because if (as I thought) it's Spanish, than don't the 'll's make a 'y' sound? Like in caballo, or horse?

I also really love this (and want it for my spice shelf haha).

This is the British spelling, from the original Nahuatl chilli via Spanish chile :)

I love spices ^_^ I even recognize most of these, except for galangal, mahlab, sumac and asafoetida.
However, it's not 'chilli', it's chile. ^^;

Open a dictionary rather than making silly assumptions.

I would like to say you did spell it wrong.  Chili only has one "L"

Ah, people who are so sure of themselves they never bother to open a dictionary.
