Cajun Trinity: You may have come across recipes calling for this, and wonder what it is. It’s simply three ingredients used to start many Cajun dishes; bell pepper, onions, and celery. These give dishes a wonderful flavor and aroma.

Virtually all of what you point out is supprisingly precise and it makes me wonder why I hadn’t looked at this with this light previously. Your article really did switch the light on for me personally as far as this specific subject matter goes.
