At first I was afraid that the cloves would be too dominant but decided to be brave and use equal parts of all three spices. Must say I was glad I did. Made a plain white cake and added the mix. It smelled heavenly and was very nice indeed, just the taste of allspice. I like the fact that it makes a small amount, perfect to just mix together when a recipe calls for allspice. Thanks for posting. Made for P-A-R-T-Y holiday tag December 2009
Wish I discovered your Allspice recipe six years ago, approximately the time you originally posted it. I now make my own and keep in a small jar. Some recipes, like my crockpot pinto beans, I'll reduce nutmeg and cloves, per your suggestion. I use the the full-on version for baking. Thank you, so much, for posting this fabulous, yet simple, recipe!!!
Thank you soooo much. Saved me 10$ for a tiny jar of allspice by making my own out of spices I always have on hand.
Thanks for the Allspice sub. I had almost every spice on earth except that one. It smelled and tasted just the same, although my husband said he could detect the cloves with his nose....so maybe a little hold off on the cloves for some may be in order....otherwise it's a great sub. - I made a small jar of it and saved me some $$. Thanks again.
Awesome! I love being able to make my own spice blends to save shelf space and money, and this is a near-perfect substitute. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
Fantastic! It seemed I had every other spice but Allspice. Thanks for a great recipe. It tasted wonderful in my Apple Coffee Cake.
Thanks! Perfect when a recipe calls for a small amount, or not!
Was a bit hesitant at first but to lazy to drive to the store for just allspice.
Needed it for Our Lone Star Steak & Potato Dinner.
I gotta give you Kudos Turned out "perfect".
Thanks for the great idea!!!
PERFECT!!! Just what I was looking for! I used 1 tsp of each and placed in a jar for the next time I am hunting for allspice :)
This was perfect! Needed some for Bahama Shrimp Skewers and never thought to check if I had any. Was going to just leave it out but thought I would do a little search first and here it is. Came in very handy; I only needed 1/4 tsp so cut it in half. I must say I went the scardy-cat way and used the less cloves recipe. Next time I will try equal parts. Thanks for posting!
