One of my favorite spice blends: Ras el hanout literally means "head of the shop" (or best of the shop). This particular blend was hand crafted by one if the friendly ladies at @spiceandteamerchantstemecula
It's got warm, comforting notes from cinnamon, nutmeg, and cardamom. Spiciness from ginger, turmeric, mace, and black pepper, and savory notes from cumin and paprika. But my favorite part: The rose petals and lavendar (which I asked them to include). The floral finish makes this spice so delicious.
I can't wait to roast some butternut squash and sprinkle Ras El Hanout on it.
