“This recipe has been submitted for play in ZWT9 - Morocco. Recipe from cookbook: The Complete Illustrated Book of Herbs. Ras el hanout is a Mococcan mixture of 20 or more spices and herbs that usually includes cinnamon, cloves, lavender, orris root, cloves and turmeric. I have not tried this because it contains ingredients that I am allergic too, but it sounds wonderful. Posted here for you to try.”
