I was recently watching an episode of "A BITE OF CHINA" episode was called "THE TASTE OF TIME" and the lady on there was making cured fish, she added a few standard things rice, peppers, & ginger.....then just added a plant that I have never heard of sounded like (LIP C PUNGERS) I googled all these random combinations of the sound and found nothing(well nothing in regards to the plant) so I looked up the episode and found some info on it, but nothing about the ingredients and certainly nothing about that plant. It looked a tiny bit like Galangal, but the leaves were thin and grass like. So, once again it was a dead end. On the off chance I cannot discover the name of it could someone at least hook me up with a link as to where I can order plants/seeds from china? maybe then I can find the plant

Was this the episode? If so, we might be able to narrow the search down a bit by finding when the plant is mentioned, and maybe someone will recognise it.



edit - 18 minutes 28 seconds in "...kaempferol, litsea..."

Wikki has an entry on litsea - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Litsea

Yes that is the episode. I just figured it out! The "pepper-corn" looking things are the fruit of the tree (Litsea pungens Hemsl.) the grasslike blades that she is cutting up are ginger-stalks......I had confused something....Nice research! thank you for the info!
