The Lion Roars

Early spring excites
More than nature's need to grow
Eyes that take in sight
Redolence perfumed glow
Fantasies - readied; set; go

Moroccan Spice Blend

1 tablespoon ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
3/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground clove
3/4 teaspoon ground fenugreek
3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon Lavender buds
3/4 teaspoon dried Rose petals - roughly crashed
3/4 teaspoon fennel seeds
1 1/2 teaspoon sumac

Mix all ingredients together to thoroughly combine.

Use as a spice rub on chicken, lamb, or try it as a spice hit in a carrot salad.
