Harissa, a traditional Tunisian blend at our table

Harissa is a traditional Tunisian spice blend made from peppers and condiments. This one was a gift and was made by my friend's mother-in-law who lives in Tunisia. We frequently use harissa to spice up many dishes. With its intense flavor it is well paired with seafood, meat, soups and stews, pizza, pasta etc.

Jenn, at the Leftover Queen teaches how to make harissa paste.

Oi Cris! From a Brazilian girl to another: I love your bog! I particularly like your "grow your won" ideas and initiative! Where in Brazil do you live? I'm from SP but been living overseas for 10 years. First in the UK, now in South Africa.
I made carrot cake the other day, always a winner! I was featured in a magazine in May cooing Brazilian goodies. I must post it on my blog sometime. All the best Denise
