As someone who only grows a couple of things (herbs, greens, children), I understand the convenience and practicality of store-bought rubs/seasonings. But, once you starting making your own, just be prepared to get hooked.

This is fabulous flavor spice combination!! I used it on our turkey ...that we bbq'd today on the rotisserie! No particular spice stuck out...we couldn't identify them...but wonderful flavors!!
I can't wait to use the left over spice on something else!!

This is fabulous on leg of lamb-I really rubbed it on in the AM put it in the fridge and roasted the lamb in the normal way. it is heaven! Thanks Mean chef for sharing this recipe. I am storing the remainder it in a sealer in the freezer. As said the recipe makes apprz 1 1/2 cups I used about 4 tbsp on the lamb Additional comments 15 March- I rubbed the lambchops with the fennel spice in the morning, pan fried them for supper 5 minutes each side and when I flipped the chops put 1 tsp of Lingonberries on each. Fabulous flavour combination 11 April 08 Try this on a sreak - great flavor

I used this spice rub on a pork tenderloin for Pork Tenderloin Pita Sandwiches. It was very flavorful and produced a great tenderloin for the sandwiches.

mmm rubbed this on pork tenderloin...seared it in a pan then finished cooking it in the oven. delicious. next time tho i'll add more of the rub since i wasn't sure what to expect i kind of just "sprinkled" it. i even tried this on shrimp. marinated shrimp w/ the spice rub over night in a zip lock bag and threw it in a pan w/ buter and garlic and mmmm. i actually thought i burned it since i got held up w/ something but was left w/ tasty bits instead. will definately be using this rub on alot of things.

I made about half of this and grind just a bit at a time, keeping the rest frozen. I have used this with chicken salad, egg salad, tuna salad, scrambled eggs - it really adds a lovely flavor. I will have to try it on something roasted too, one of these days.

Outstanding on Bergy's Pork Loin Rib/rack of Rib for Two. A most unusual but enticing exotic fragrance fills the house when I'm toasting this in the skillet,grinding up in the blender, and roasting on a roast in the oven! And what a delectable result! Thanks for your posting!

The mini food processor didn't work. The electric coffee grinder did a great job. A friend has one just for spices. This was great on turkey and really good, but a bit strong, on chicken breast. The flavor is really good and unique. I'm thinking of more foods to use it on. Thanks.

Yum, yum yum!! I made up a half quantity, unsure if we would like it, but I have used it on barbecued pork loin, griddled chops and sautéd chicken breasts. I even travelled on holiday with a small jar of it- used it once and then donated it to my friend to jazz up the pork loin she was cooking the day we visited!! Fortunately she loved it too! Thanks! Off I go to make a second batch...!
