The Queen of Couscous, Kitty Morse, an acclaimed food writer, shared her Ras El Hanout recipe with us. Thanks to the popularity of Middle Eastern cooking, this spice is a favorite among home cooks perfecting their own tagines. Kitty Morse recommends roasting the spices before using them. This versatile blend has an abundance of uses, definitely earning its title of "Top of the Shop." Use it when you are roasting vegetables, braising beef with preserved lemon, or to add a kick to a pot of soup. Ingredients: Turmeric, pepper, cardamom, nutmeg, sea salt, ginger, mace, allspice, saffron.

I am beginning to explore Middle Eastern cuisines and found this spice blend to be a wonderful part of that exploration.
Wow! I put some Ras El Hanout, pepper and olive oil on carrots and baked for a little over an hour. These were amazing.
Every time I purchase this spice it is different. But it is always the best Ras El Hanout I can buy. It is useful for vegetables and meat, which makes it a versatile spice in my kitchen.

I have used juniper berries, sumac, and 5 spice. Very pleased. Fresh and noticeable brighter flavor. Looking forward to using others just haven't gotten there yet. Thanks for asking.
