What Are The Best Spices For Making Your Own Seasonings and Spice Blends?
There’s no right or wrong brand. I will first say, buy what you can afford. However, not all spices are created equal as you tend to get what you pay for. Currently I use Morton & Bassett (not sponsored) because I find their spices to be top notch in texture, color and flavor. I love and respect what their company stands for not only with charitable work but also quality control. With that said some other wonderful brands I’ve used over the years are Simple Organic, Frontier Co-op and Penzys.
Into a jar or container with a tight fitting lid, measure and add in 2 tablespoons each of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger and clove.
So easy you basically don’t need a recipe. However if you’re not looking to have a 1/2 cup of this spice mix than you can cut this in half for 1/4 cup.
Stir or whisk to combine and you’re all set.
