Moroccan Lamb Stew

This is great with flat bread and preserved lemons...or over couscous. 3/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon cumin 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice dash of cayenne 1/4 teaspoon paprika 3 1/2 pounds o-bone (round-bone) lamb shoulder chops, well trimmed, cut into 1-inch pieces, or 2 pounds lamb stew meat 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 cups chopped onions 3 garlic cloves, minced 1 1/2 tablespoons minced peeled fresh ginger diced potatoes and carrots sliced zucchini 1 1/3 cups water splash of wine 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley 1 tablespoon honey nuts (I use whatever I have on hand, but usually pistachios or pecans) golden raisins or dried cherries Mix spices in medium bowl. Add lamb and toss to coat with spice mixture. Heat oil in heavy large pot over medium-high heat. Working in batches, add lamb to pot and sauté until brown on all sides, about 4 minutes per batch. Return all lamb to pot. Add onion, garlic and ginger to pot and sauté 5 minutes
