What a wonderful spice mix! I really like the combination of spicy peppercorns with sweet cinnamon and intense cloves. I am sure that this will be great in many different kinds of dishes, especially sauces and sweet desserts or baked goods. Cant wait to try it in scones. :) I made up half a batch, grinding the spices in my mum's mortar and pestle and it yielded quite a lot, but I wish I had made the full recipe as this would be great as a gift, too. I will make more and give it to my swap partner in your herbs and spices swap. Cant wait to hear how she likes it. THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this great recipe with us, FT! Made and reviewed for Aussie/NZ Swap January 2010.

Very nice. Wondering what spices would make a good quatre épices for sweets. Thanks for the recipe.

This was easy to put together (I grated the nutmeg with my micro-planer before grinding everything). The smell is wonderful and when I tasted it, it has some zing to it. I am going to try it in a rub for a pork roast later. I made the peppercorn version, but will try the allspice next time. UPDATE: I have tried this on pork and chicken and it was wonderful on both!
