Mixed Spice Girls


Flame and Forest contributed their hand-ground Allspice to Willa and Jane’s project…




…it was an essential ingredient for their special Mixed Spice recipe!



Spices and mixing bowl

Willa helped Jane get the rest of the ingredients and equipment together…




…then Jane put the mortar and pestle to good use again, and ground up some mace…



Grinding Mace

and supervised Willa doing the same.



Beautiful Spices

There are so many beautiful colours of brown!




…and they smell so good…we recommend using fresh spices if at all possible!




One big jar, and one small one – ready for the upcoming seasonal baking!



Ready For Baking

The recipe says to put into a sealed jar and store in a dark cupboard, but we are going to use this mixture almost right away…


Mixed Spice Recipe from the BBC:

1 Tablespoon ground Allspice (freshly ground by Forest and Flame is the best!)

1 Tablespoon ground Cinnamon bark

1 Tablespoon grated Nutmeg

2 Teaspoons ground Mace

1 Teaspoon ground Cloves

1 Teaspoon ground Coriander

1 Teaspoon dried ground Ginger Root

Mix together. Store in a sealed jar in a dark cupboard.
