Baharat Spice Mix

 This is an absolutely fabulous aromatic spice mixture to add to vegetable dishes or use as a spice rub for meat.  We were interested in having some Middle Western food to recognize the end of Ramadan, and this was an excellent choice.
  • 12 cup black peppercorns
  • 14 cup whole coriander seed
  • 14 cup cinnamon sticks
  • 14 cup whole cloves
  • 13 cup cumin seed
  • 2 teaspoons whole cardamon pods
  • 4 whole whole nutmegs
  • 12 cup ground paprika
  1. Basically, just place all the spices except the paprika and nutmeg in a blender or adequate grinder and process until it becomes a powder.
  2. If necessary you can grind 1/2 cup at a time.
  3. Grate the nutmeg and blend this with the paprika into the spices.
  4. Store in an airtight jar.
  5. Generally in some areas, they lightly toast the spices in an oven to bring out more flavor.
  6. You can gain this also by putting the amount you're going to use, on a hot dry saute pan and toast it for a few seconds before using.
  7. This not only makes the kitchen smell good, but brings out a richer flavor of any spice.
