Spice Mix with Rose Hips

I made a special trip to the store to find rose hips JUST for a spice mixture recipe I had found... now, I cannot find the mixture recipe! I believe it came from some form of middle eastern cuisine cookbook, but I have checked my personal library and can't find it. I've gotten so many cookbooks out of the library lately (and returned them) that I fear it is lost forever... Has anyone ever seen a recipe for a spice mix that has rosehips in it? thanks!

  1. Sounds like one of the many versions of baharat. Google "baharat recipe" and you'll find a wide assortment. The Tunisian version frequently includes rose petals or rosebuds, so that may be the one you're looking for.

    1. I'm not familiar with the Tunisian style of baharat, but advieh is a common Persian spice blend that prominently features rose.
