Try tossing them, finely chopped, into freshly steamed asparagus, cauliflower or broccoli. Add them to salads or salad dressings, up the flavor ante in your soups or stews...really, the possibilities are endless. I can't wait for you to try roasting a chicken with them.

½ tsp ground cumin
½ tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp sea salt

Mix garlic, ginger, paprika, cumin, turmeric, salt and pepper together. Rub chicken with mixture, cover and let marinate 2 to 3 hours.
Heat oil in heavy skillet. Add chicken, and brown on all sides. Remove to platter. Add onions to skillet, and cook over medium-low heat about 15 minutes, until lightly browned. Add cinnamon stick or ground cinnamon and place chicken on onions. Scatter with chopped olives and diced lemons. Cover skillet.
