*Notes: Use dry ingredients for the spice blend to ensure minimal moisture gets into the spices which could turn the blend rancid.

Using a combination of fresh and dried ingredients for the marinade will result in optimal flavour notes. The marinade will stay fresh in the fridge for two to three months in a well sealed jar.
