Cajun Chicken Wings

12 Chicken wings -- tips removed
5 Bay leaves -- crumbled into bits
3/4 teaspoon Caraway seeds
1/2 To 3/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
3/4 teaspoon Ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon Ground coriander
4 Garlic cloves -- finely
1 1/2 teaspoons Dry mustard
2 teaspoons Paprika -- preferably
3/4 teaspoon Dried thyme leaves
1/2 teaspoon Salt
2 tablespoons Brandy
2 tablespoons Fresh lemon or lime juice

Defat the chicken wings by cooking them in boiling water for 10 minutes.
Drain and set aside to cool. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Using a large
mortar and pestle, grind together the bay leaf bits, caraway seeds,
cayenne pepper, coriander, cumin, garlic, mustard, paprika, thyme and salt
for about 10 minutes. Add the brandy and lemon or lime juice to the
pulverized herbs and stir into a thick paste. With a pastry brush, cover
both sides of each wing with the herb paste. When no more remains in the
mortar, squeeze the last few drops from the brush. Arrange the chicken
wings on a baking sheet. Bake until the skin turns deep brown and is quite
crisp approximately 30 minutes. Takes about an hour to prepare.
