Spicy!

Morocco DE-1521887 received 08-24-2012

Notes: This spice stall is not located in Germany.  It's located in a place known for spices (among other things) - the market in Marrakesh, Morocco.  The cones are made of paper that is covered in glue and then sprinkled with ground spices to show which spices the stall sells.  I'm pretty sure the bundles of reddish-brown sticks are cinnamon, and I think ginger is to the right of the cinnamon.  In addition to cinnamon and ginger, the most important spices in Moroccan cooking are cayenne, turmeric, black pepper, anise, cumin, paprika and saffron.  I suspect that most, if not all of those, are represented on the cones.
