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

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.

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!

This came in so handy for me! I needed 1/4 teaspoon of allspice for Pasta Jambalaya Pasta Jambalaya and it worked great. I used equal amounts of all three spices. Thank you!
