As I was putting this together and realizing how much it made, I was really hoping I'd like it. Well, happily, I love it. I made it as an ingredient in Sinaya, a dish I was looking forward to trying. I am reviewing Sinaya separately, but suffice it to say that the spiced meat and onion filling was absolutely delicious. I made the spice mix exactly as written, but for the optional dried lemon rind. I ground the seeds and peppercorns, grated the nutmeg. Even without cooking anything my kitchen was quite fragrant. Interestingly, while there is some heat, this is not a searingly hot mix, so that you can enjoy the complexity without your lips burning or your mouth going numb. I think I'll use the whole jar well before the flavors start to fade.
