Flavor and Uses:
Most Harissa is found as a chile paste, but that doesn't do justice for the complexity of our smoky & sweet Moroccan Harissa Spice Blend. Those chiles need tomatoes, preserved lemon and garlic to intensify the burn! But, chiles also need the sublte sweetness of carrots & honey to tame the Harissa monster into a staple of every day family cooking. Use in a marinade or sauce to bring depth, character, and excitement to your cooking!
