Ras El Hanout

From Morton & Bassett
Ras El Hanout is a spice mix found in varying forms in Tunisia, Algeria, and Morocco. The name means head of the shop in Arabic and implies a mixture of the best spices the seller has to offer—or top shelf. Ras El Hanout is used in many savory dishes, sometimes rubbed on meat or fish, or stirred into couscous, pasta, or rice.

No two versions of this spice blend are the same. Each shop, company, or family may have their own blend. So, when sampling Ras El Hanout from different sources, you’ll notice slight flavor variations. And, at its core, the spice blend isn’t intrinsically spicy unless you intentionally add heat to the flavor profile.

You are going to want to put this blend on everything. Plus, it makes a great BBQ rub and marinade.

Morton & Bassett Ras El Hanout contains coriander, paprika, cumin, cardamom, cinnamon, black pepper, red pepper, turmeric, ginger, nutmeg, clove, and allspice.
