Mixed Spice

Mixed Spice created by luvcookn

This finely ground mixture is usually found on the spice shelves of shops, but it loses flavour quite quickly. Here is a South African version, which can be crushed in a mortar and pestle or ground in a blender. Keep tightly closed away from sun.

    Just love the earthiness of this blend. I am looking forward to using this. I used nutmeg that a friend brought back from the Barbados. It came complete with the mace coating. I am not sure where to use it...but I think perhaps I will make a yeasted sweet bread and add this yummy blend. Again Zurie...a recipe that I am excited about trying. Thank you for sharing.

    I LOVE the concept of mixing your own Spices! to adjust according to cuisine,whims,and availability. Keep your old, empty spice jars to resurrect as your Signature Spice.
