Garam Masala No. 3038
     1 small     Nutmeg, Whole
 1 1/2 Tbls      Cardamom, Green Pods
     4 1 Inch    Cinnamon Sticks
     1 Tbls      Whole Cloves
     1 tsp       Peppercorns
     1 tsp       Cumin Seeds

NOTES: All the ingredients MUST be FRESH. DO NOT use bleached white
cardamom pods. Grind the cardamom pods along with the spice. You may use a
coffee grinder (but not one which has been used to grind coffee) or a spice
grinder. Do NOT use one of the coffee grinders which slices (chops) rather
than grinds.

Crush the nutmeg coarsely using a mortar and pestle. Combine with the
remaining ingredients. Place in the feed container of the grinder. Grind
very fine. Store in an airtight container. May be frozen.
