18 Spice Rub
Like many good chicken rubs our 18 Spice Chicken Rub has a bit of sweetness to it from the demerara sugar and cinnamon. The demerara sugar helps form a nice crust to keep the juices in. While I love spicy heat for this blend I went with a mellower subtle kick from the variety of chiles we used (ancho, pasilla, de arbol and cayenne). Finally you'll note some very gentle hints of licorice from the fennel with some subtle fruitiness from the ancho and cloves.
Hand blended from ancho, pasilla, cinnamon, ginger, onion, garlic, cumin, sea salt, demerara sugar, mustard, black pepper, coriander, California paprika, cloves, allspice, fennel, cayenne and de arbol.
