Baharat is a mixture of spices and herbs used in Middle Eastern cooking. There are many variations depending on the region and cook. Turkish baharat typically has mint, while you may find rose petals in North African blends. Baharat is the Arabic word for “spices” and this blend is warm and aromatic. Our proprietary version uses herbs with a slew of spices including black pepper, cinnamon, and cumin for a heady balance of flavors.
Check out our Recipe, below, and well as these Great Ideas for Using Baharat:
Spices lose their potency once they are ground, or exposed to heat or light. We use whole spices for optimal flavor and grind them as needed, then package the blends in black rice paper bags to keep them away from light. Store the blends in a cool spot and use within 2-3 months. Baharat is a no-salt blend.
Serves 4 to 6
1 boneless pork roast, about 3 pounds
2-3 teaspoons Baharat spice blend
1 tablespoon olive oil
7-8 slices bacon

I bought this when it was first introduced and love it. I toss fingerling potatoes with a little olive oil (or spray with Pam) and this flavorful blend and roast. The end product is amazing. I am trying to get away from using butter and margarine so I am experimenting with herbs and was not disappointed with tasty blend. If you are looking for a little international flavor but tired of the usual (Chinese 7 spice blends, curry blends, etc) this will do the trick. Very easy to use.
