"For anyone who desires an authentic taste of the mid east. This recipe was learned by watching a good friend of mine in Jordan when she was grinding her family's monthly supply."

"Excellent blend of spices. Love the amount of nutmeg! (I did cut recipe in half, though). I used it in Recipe #369174. I think this would be good on fish, also!"
"I was making Recipe #369174 and needed this spice mix. It gave the chicken a wonderful flavour. I cut it short and used already ground spices."
"This is a staple in my cupboard. I omit the nutmeg though because it is an intoxicant and therefore it is not halal. I add less allspice in it's place. I use whole spices and toast them in a dry pan before grinding them. This gives off a wonderful aroma. Definitely using whole spices as well as toasting them gives a better flavour than any store bought version of this mix."
"Nice flavor and useful mix. I've prepared this for the Roasted Chicken Al-Kabsa (Saudi). I've reduced all the amounts, because I't easy to prepare fresh one when I need it. Thanks!"
"Loved the flavor! I used ground spices as that was what I had on hand."
"This was Wonderful!I am so glad I came across this.Thnax :)"
"I was trying to copy a favorite dish from a local mid-east deli & couldn't get the spices right until I found this recipe!! It's fantastic!!"
"usedfor recipe #374039 very handy to have"
"Made as directed in batches in my spice-dedicated coffee grinder. Referred to by UmmBinat's recipe #390844 for Saudi Tahini & Tomato Chicken. Thanks, alAmira for a great spice recipe!"
"How much nutmeg is too much---you've just instructed a few million people to put FOUR whole nutmegs in this recipe!"
"This is a very nice blend. I used cassia bark - I can buy it from the chinese grocers as it is 'chinese cinnamon'. Regular cinnamon bark or sticks works well also.... thanks Jan!"
"I have never tried baharat before, so I used teaspoons instead of cups for my measurements (so 1/4 cup = 1/4 tsp) which yielded about 1 tbsp baharat, which was perfect for the recipe I was trying. It was great, and I will make a larger batch next time, now that I know we like it :)"
"Great mix! Made it for using it in recipe #423998 and will use it in everything calling for baharat now. Thanks for sharing!"
