Question

A cup of this, a bunch of these,

a part of countless recipes.

Aha! That look, you've found my trail,

now dig for truth, tooth and nail.

It makes perfect sense to me,

but for some it may be hard to see,

so a hint to help you save your time,

with orange or purple, it does rhyme.

all good guesses so far, but straying from the track a little... if I make it to two pages i may elaborate a bit, but for now I'm enjoying the fact that it wasn't solved on the first try

cooking "supper"

ok let's try this way...

Ingredients

Doesn't rhyme with orange or purple though.

Mix

none of these...but the more general thinking is the right way to go

and the hint may be trickier than the actual riddle... rolleyes.gif

something that rhymes with something that is both orange and purple....such as fruit, colors, candy, soda...I don't know. Just an idea with the confusing hint

i actually put the hint in a spoiler so you wouldn't be confused...unless you were already confused, in which case you might become unconfused... confusion + confusion = clarity right? wacko.gif

....anyway there is in fact no direct rhyme with orange or purple, but it has something to do with that part of the rhyme

"forage" for food....or...you cooked porridge

rhymes (sounds like it does anyway) orange, and deals with cooking/ eating...

How did you change the title??

Martini changed it because it wasn't descriptive...

and the guesses are getting a little off track again...to clarify a little peeJ, one of your guesses was close and the other not so much
