Ras el Hanout is a popular Moroccan blend of spices that is used across North Africa. The name means "top of the shop" in Arabic and refers to a mixture of the best spices a seller has to offer.
There is no definitive set combination of spices that makes up Ras el hanout. Each shop, company, or person would have their own secret combination containing over a dozen spices. Typically they would include cardamom, clove, cinnamon, ground chili peppers, coriander, cumin, nutmeg, peppercorn, and turmeric.
While I won't give away my secret recipe I will say it contains a dozen spices and 7 of those are listed above.
Ras el Hanout is used in almost every kind of food, sometimes rubbed on meat and stirred into rice.
Comes in a 4 oz. plastic french square bottle with a net weight of 1.6 oz.
