Top Review by Pesto lover

I boiled carrots until just done, drained the water, added 1 tbsp of this seasoning blend, 1 tbsp butter and 1 tbsp brown sugar to create a glaze. Wow! I can't wait to try it on chicken. The flavor is wonderful. Thanks for sharing the recipe.


  1. Dry-fry or roast the cinnamon and peppercorns in a heavy trying pan over medium heat to release their flavour.
  2. Grind the roasted spices to a powder and mix with the ginger, turmeric and nutmeg.
  3. Use at once or store in an airtight jar, away from heat or light.
