Ras el Hanout
by Villa Jerada
Ras el Hanout in Arabic translates to "head of the shop," as in the finest spices the store has on hand. Like the others in the Villa Jerada line, this Ras el Hanout spice blend is Morocco in a jar. The stunning label fits the bill, the individual ingredients certainly fit the bill - all of which are imported directly from Morocco, and the wonderful result is just what you would expect in traditional Moroccan flavor.
This blend is just right for marinades, as a dry rub, and as a standalone seasoning in stews. For quick use, mix Ras el Hanout into whipped butter or sour cream and use as a topping. Better yet, sprinkle a bit on popcorn for movie night.
Ingredients: saffron, rose petals, anise star, fennel seeds, white peppercorns, galangal, nutmeg, mace, lavender, all spice, ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, monk pepper.
