The ingredients are layered, like sand art. Don't worry about
getting the layers even. The desert effect comes from the rippled
appearance of the spices. One tip is to carefully add each seasoning
along the edges of the jar, then fill in the middle of the layer.
This way all of the beautiful colors show along all of the edges.
Attach the following recipe to the jar.
