Kick Any Dish Up a Notch

Janet Groene’s
Quickie Berbere
    In Ethiopia, where this seasoning is basic to so many everyday dishes, a long list of spices are toasted and mixed to make a complex blend of flavors.  Recipes vary from household to household.  To kick up RV meals here is a quick, shortcut version of Berbere to stir up in your galley: 

3 tablespoons ground red pepper
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    Keep in a tightly sealed container and use it to taste in soups, stews and casseroles or as part of your favorite rubs or sauces. It has a real kick,  so go easy at first.
    Cook’s note: the definition of “ground red pepper” varies from chili powder to cayenne. You be the judge.
