Ras El Hanout

This Moroccan spice blend is usually sold in ground form - but traditionally, spice vendors would sell ras el hanout whole, or 'brut', like handfuls of potpourri.

Ras el hanout has 100's of different variations - often including fragrant rose petals, cloves, cumin, coriander and cardamom. It's rubbed into meat for grilling and braising for example Tagines, it's stirred into rice, and is a great addition to hand made chips and roast potatoes.
