 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      3/4  teaspoon      ground cardamom
      1/4  teaspoon      ground cinnamon
      1/8  teaspoon      ground cloves
      1/2  teaspoon      fennel seed -- ground
      1/2  teaspoon      garlic powder
      1/4  teaspoon      ground red pepper
      1/2  teaspoon      ground ginger -- optional
 Ginger, fresh or dried?   Dried ground ginger tends to be milder, more
 suitable for baked goods. If you want the fiery taste of ginger, the ginger
 must be fresh.  Substitute up to 2 teaspoons of grated gingerroot for 1/2
 teaspoon ground ginger.
      Grind and blend all seasonings.  Store in a small spice bottle.  Above
 recipe makes enough rub for 2 to 3 pounds of poultry.
      USE as a rub for poultry or lamb, a seasoning for curries, vegetables,
 fruit salads and, occasionally, for rice.
 Rub or dust on chicken (skin on) or cornish hens and bake (375F/190C) on a
 rack until crispy (about 1 hour or more).  Serve with saffron rice, garnish
 with orange slices and fresh chopped parsley.  Fresh peas (snaps or shelled)
 round out the menu.
