Posted for ZWT6: Middle East. Adapted from Bon Appetit. I can't wait to try this! Ras el hanout can be homemade using spices you probably already have on hand, I use Recipe #262189. Note: The sauce can be made 2 hours ahead of time. If you do this, let it stand at room temp until ready to make the rest of the recipe. Prep time does not include 30 minutes of soaking dried apricots.
