This was adapted from a recipe I saw on Chowhound. Some will have you use equal parts of all seven, but sometimes cloves, and nutmeg can be a little overpowering. It's nice I can get my spices in little baggies and scoop as much or as little as I want, it's a good way to try spices.
Lebanese Mixed Spice or Lebanese 7 spice mix
Mix them all together and store in a airtight container. It makes a small amount so a spice jar would probably work better, but you can always double it. I like to reuse glass jars, I do it all the time...jam jars or condiments, if it's glass I can't throw it out. Some day I'll show you what I do with them all...or maybe make some jam!
You can use it when making tabouleh too...check out my recipe on Our Krazy Kitchen where it's my Saturday for Cultural Connections.
Since I am out of school (work) for the summer and my husband started his own business we have been able to have more meals together. I am helping him when and where I can. We met for breakfast with a friend who is painting his office. This is an old fashioned diner type drive in, the food is good, but really basic drive in food...
...but it's the atmosphere (all outside) you really go for, it's fun and everyone is so friendly. Many regulars meet for lunch or breakfast.
Do you have a hole-in-the-wall place that you enjoy going to?
