DIRECTIONS

  • Place the chiles in a medium saucepan and cover with cold water.
  • Place over high heat and let the water come to a boil.
  • Remove from heat and let sit for about an hour.
  • Drain the chiles and place in a blender or food processor along with the salt and garlic.
  • Blend the mixture and add the lemon juice, bit by bit, to keep the mixture moving. ( If the peppers don't seem to be blending, add additional lemon juice as needed.).
  • Once the mixture is thoroughly blended, remove and place in a small glass jar.
  • Stir in the cumin and smooth the mixture down.
  • Pour enough olive oil over the "harissa" to completely cover the top.
  • Cover and refrigerate.
  • Makes about 1/2 cup.
