Look for it in Asian markets. Preserved salted mustard cabbage (kiam chye) is used in some Chinese and Nonya dishes. It is a sour and salty vegetable that is frequently used in soups. Soak the heavily salted cabbage in water for 15 minutes to remove some of the saltiness, repeating if necessary. The taste is similar to salty sauerkraut, which makes a good substitute. It is sold in jars or plastic packets in Chinese food stores. Saffron is the world's most expensive spice. The dried strands are usually infused in warm milk before being added to rice and dessert dishes.

Chayote or daikon radish may be substituted. Kaffir lime leaves are added whole to curries, or finely shredded and added to salads, giving them a wonderfully tangy flavor.

They have an intense fragrance reminiscent of lemon with a hint of eucalyptus.
