Well Fed: Ras El Hanout

I know it has been some time since we talked about our cooking experiment. Truth is, I’ve been cooking out of this cookbook for sometime, I just haven’t made time to sit at my trusty computer and tell you all about it. I started out with a couple easy items, like mixing spices together. I’d like to direct your attention to page 47 of Well Fed. Ras El Hanout first originated in North Africa about a zillion years ago, and could contain a lot more spices. What I love about Melissa Joulwans recipe is how simple it really is. Essentially you take about 10 exotic yummy spices and whisk them together with a fork.

All I had on hand was whole allspice, so I used my coffe bean grinder, and grinded it all up, and put it back into the spice container  I don’t remember the last time I used whole allspice, as a matter of fact, I don’t recall the very reason I bought whole allspice? You know those containers of flavored almonds? I used those for my homemade spice mixes. I cleaned them out, took off the labeling and mixed up this amazing spice inside it. I have yet to actually use Ras El Hanout, but let me tell you what, it smells AMAZING!
