I use this all the time and it is excellent. I have it in an unmarked container on my spice rack and people always ask to smell it--leading most often to a unison "wow". Seriously, just try making this spice mixture sometime. I have no doubt your experience will mirror mine; you'll be looking for dishes to use this in constantly.

I recently was diagnosed with kidney failure and was searching for low salt recipes and found this. I just substituted garlic powder for the garlic salt and ground celery seed for the celery salt. I have made beef stew twice and a chicken stir fry and take the leftovers to work and it is delicious (in fact twice when I went to get the second container of leftovers and my wife had already eaten it on me!). Thank you so much.

This is WONDERFUL! I had everything on-hand to mix this up, and used the optional saffron. I used this in Timman Z'affaran (Iraqi Saffron Rice With Meat) in place of the baharat spice. Thanks for posting, I'll be using this for a variety to things in the future. Made for ZWT6 - NA*ME Region and the Queens of Quisine!

I expected this to be the hottest of the three spice mixes I tried today. It wasn't. It was quite spicey but still very flavorful. I rubbed it on chicken that was then grilled outside. Made for ZWT #6 - 2010.

What a lovely mix of smells and tastes! I scaled the recipe down a bit and added the rose petals(I have a hillside overflowing with wild roses right now). I made this for the Zaar World Tour Kitchen Gadget Challenge for the Looney Spoon Phoodies! Thanks!

I made this to use in a tagine, but I also used it to spiff up some lentils that were too plain. Very nice! ZWT6

Heh this is quite belated for Veggie Swap-- but this was such a fantastic spice mix! I didn't have any of the optional ingredients and just put in extra nutmeg since I don't keep mace around, and just the scent was mouthwatering. I mixed about a teaspoon or two with some olive oil to sautee some greenbeans and coucous, it came out really exquisite like I'd spent hours on it! Made for Veggie Swap (18 I think) for the VIP (better late than never lol)

Maaaarvelous my dear, just maaaarvelous. I included the anise and rose petals. As a trial I used it in a chicken salad for lunch and it was a pure delight. I made a 1/2 amount as I'm the only one who likes anything flavorful around here (bummer). I can't wait to try it in something really Moroccan. :D
