      Delicious! We had some guests drop by unexpectedly for dinner that had never tried Moroccan food before, and they also loved it. I used the full amount of honey and we felt that there was just the right amount of sweetness. We made this using your Ras El Hanout - Moroccan Spice Mix. I could not taste the saffron at all so I may leave it out next time. I did not need to add any additional water at the honey stage because the sauce was pretty thin and there was plenty of liquid. Thanks for sharing! Made for Spring 2010 PAC.

      This was good. Taking another review into consideration I used half the honey. I suggest using 1 1/2 tbs to those who make this. I used the Ras El Hanout - Moroccan Spice Mix suggested and toasted the blanched almonds and white sesame seeds in a dry pan preferring it that way after trying them on top untoasted. DH and I are not excited about Moroccan tagine flavoring that's why the 4 stars. Made for NA*ME Tag.

      DH and I were a bit divided about this one. We both really enjoyed it, but I just found it a bit too sweet. The honey and cinnamon are the dominant flavours. I found myself wanting something to cut the sweetness, maybe a bit of preserved lemon or a bit of heat or some additional vegetables to balance it out, but DH liked it just as written. Tasty and healthy though! Thanks Nasseh!
