Allspice Substitute

"This is one spice that I do not normally have on hand. Most of my recipes do not call for it, but sometimes you just need it. This is a recipe for a substitution that works great. Below are two measurements. The normal formula is equal amounts of all three, but if you like the cloves and nutmeg less predominant, use the lesser amount. Both will have the flavor of allspice. See note at the bottom."

    Isn't this a recipe for Mixed Spice? This is what we use in hot cross bus etc - I think All Spice is something very different - it's more savoury, peppery

    If I am making Swedish meatballs, how should I adjust this.

    Wish I discovered your Allspice recipe six years ago, approximately the time you originally posted it. I now make my own and keep in a small jar. Some recipes, like my crockpot pinto beans, I'll reduce nutmeg and cloves, per your suggestion. I use the the full-on version for baking. Thank you, so much, for posting this fabulous, yet simple, recipe!!!

    Thank you soooo much. Saved me 10$ for a tiny jar of allspice by making my own out of spices I always have on hand.
