This spice blend is frequently used in Syrian and Armenian dishes. This recipe is derived from my grandmother-in-law's Armenian Orthodox church. The original made just over a pound of spice blend, which is far too much, so I've scaled it down by a quarter.


  1. Grind the allspice, pepper, and cloves in a food processor, coffee grinder or blender.
  2. Add the cinnamon and nutmeg and pulse briefly to combine.
  3. Store in a covered container.
