Quatre Epices (Four Spices) Gascon

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Chef Kate

Quatre epices comes in many versions. This combination--with pepper, without allspice or coriander, is typical of Gascogny and is used in many dishes, especially in confit. I like to use whole spices and put them all in the grinder; the scent and the flavor is greatly enhanced. If you only have the pre-ground versions, then use them and it will be a delicious mix. The measures are a guide; feel free to adapt to your own taste.

When I tagged for PRMR, I knew exactly for which I wanted to use add this--homemade chutney. Exotic, fragrant and flavorful...yep, the spice is right!
