    French Tart's Note:

    The aromatic scent of holidays and Mum's home baking, mixed spice is an essential jar on the spice rack. Mixed spice is a blend of sweet spices traditionally used in English cooking to provide a warming backnote. This typically English spice mixture can be purchased ready-mixed, but I prefer to make my own, as I find it difficult to find in France and I have my own special blend. It is essential for fruit cakes, Christmas plum pudding, mincemeat and hot cross buns; mixed spice is also a great addition to other fruity desserts such as apple & fruit pies, crumbles and compotes. Try it in cream cheese desserts, pickles, chutneys and mulled wine too. Make it up and buy the spices needed in small quantities, as the mixture soon loses its full rich flavour. Allspice, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and ginger are the usual blend of spices, but I sometimes like to add a few ground cardamom seeds as well as some ground coriander seeds. This spice mixture makes an unusual and attractive gift - tie a ribbon around the neck of the jar, with pretty paper and then add a seasonal recipe tag.

      I just made my second batch a couple of weeks ago. This is the BEST! I definitely use the coriander and cardamom and the only change I make is I use pre-ground cinnamon (2 teaspoons). This is so much better than store-bought "Apple Pie Spice" or "Pumpkin Pie Spice."

      I got this in a spice swap last year and realized as I emptied the bag that it came that I have never submitted a review. This is a wonderful combination of flavors that goes well in baked goods or anything calling for mixed spices. Thank you much French Tart for sharing with me.

      Yummy. I used this in Carob "cocoa", Hot for a delicious treat as well as Grilled Pineapple and Banana With Honey which was lovely. Originally made for Vegetarian/Vegan Recipe Tag Game - September 2010 in Kittencal's forum.
