DUKKAH

I first tasted Dukkah about a year ago. For those that have never heard of it -it is a delicious Egyptian spice blend made by mixing toasted nuts and spices. Traditionally it is eaten as a snack by dipping flat bread into extra virgin olive oil and then into the spice mix.

It is delicious!
So after a bit of experimenting I have made some for Christmas presents with a little help from my very eager assistant Super Boy.



Here is my version of the recipe.
1 cup pistachio nuts
1 cup almonds
2 tbs dried parsley
1 tbs mixed herbs
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp five spice
1 tbs coriandr seeds

Roast nuts in a hot oven for 15 min., mix often to ensure they don't burn.
Roast seeds.
Cool nuts and seeds.
Process in a food processor and combine with other herbs and spices.
Store in sterile glass containers.
This recipe made 2 1/2 jars.
