So, here is a mix I have put together and tried different ways and like.
4 T. dry ground cinnamon
1 T. dry ground ginger
1 T. dry ground nutmeg
1/2 T. dry ground cloves
1/2 T. dry ground allspice (optional)
Mix all in a small bowl and store in a glass jar with lid.
Great for pies, squash, spice breads, hot drinks and smoothies. The allspice is optional because I can live without that flavor if needed. The first 4 ingredients are more important spices and if your pocket book and cupboard is even bare for that many, just use cinnamon and cloves. Or Just use cinnamon by itself.
Notice that I put the recipe on the spice mix container. I need to do that to all my spice mix containers. It is a quick way to make a new batch in a hurry without searching for the recipe.
It is not lovely, but the purpose is efficient. Perhaps, I will erase it with some nail polish remover and rewrite it better at some point, but for now I am going with it.
