<<< Auntie Arwen's blend sounds pretty much where I'm trying to
go, except that I'm also not familiar with galangal.  But I may give  
hers a
try if I can't figure out my own blend, and see how it works out. >>>

You might want to just order some of Arwen's blend, at least to try  
it. The catch is the galangal. You can find out more about galangal  
in the link I give below. The trick is getting the galangal into a  
powdered form that can be used in such a spice mixture. Galangal is a  
root and generally when you find it, it will be in large chunks, up  
to about a quarter inch in size. There are a number of reports in the  
file about galangal, because it is very hard, distroying spice  
grinders. I have found galangal in powdered form, once in an oriental  
market. I think that the Pepperer's Guild may sell galangal in  
powdered form since they sell a spice mixture which includes it.  
Since I wanted it for the spice mixture, and they sold that, I just  
bought the spice mixture.

At least in the form of the large root chunks, it should keep quite
