Make Your Own Allspice
If you have ever wanted to make a recipe that called for allspice, but lacked that ingredient, then this article is for you. I will show you, in a few simple steps, how you can create the equivalent of allspice for use in cooking or baking. This mixture uses a combination of other common spices, which can be made in advance and stored just like other spices. There is no reason why a perfectly good recipe should go to waste because of a missing spice.
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon cloves
Preparation time 5mins
Cooking time 5mins
Gather ground spices: cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. You will use these to create your allspice concoction.
Measure out ½ teaspoon of cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon of ginger, and ¼ teaspoon of cloves.
Mix the ingredients until well blended.
This will give you one teaspoon of the equivalent of allspice. For a greater quantity, just double the spice amounts and measure out the correct amount, when completed.
