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.
