Africa is a huge continent and has a fascinating cuisine. It is cooked there mainly with fresh ingredients and many different spices. African food is spicy, usually hot and very aromatic.
During my time in West Africa, I learned to appreciate the African cuisine and especially love their spice blends. Tsire is such a typical West African spice mixture. It is traditionally mixed with ground peanuts and then used to flavor kebabs. The result is a delicious nutty - crunchy crust on the meat - mixed with the great flavors of this spice mixture.
It is also used for marinating barbecue meat. Just put 1 teaspoon Tsire in 4 table spoons oil and coat your meat with it. Marinate it for a few hours and then grill it.
Tsire also fits in casserole dishes or in dips for vegetable sticks. I like it on a steak, which I cut into strips and then serve it with salad in bread just like a kebab. A yogurt dressing mixed with the spice blend Tsire makes it taste fresh, aromatic, spicy with the right heat.

Please give your spice mixtures and spices in an airtight container after receipt. I prefer glasses with screw caps, as they are easy to clean. (5 min in bubbly boiling water and they are sterile). Store in a dry, cool and dark place.
