SPECULAAS SPICE

8 T CINNAMON
3 T GROUND GINGER
2 T CARDOMOM
2 T NUTMEG
1 T WHITE PEPPER
1 T BLACK PEPPER
1 TSP CLOVES (i.e 1/3 T CLOVES)

GRIND TOGETHER ALL INCREDIENTS TO POWDER IN HIGH-SPEED BLENDER OR COFFEE GRINDER.

USE IN SPECULAAS, GINGERBREAD, AS AN ALTERNATIVE FLAVOUR FOR CHEESECAKE, APPLE OR PUMPKIN PIE, OR PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE, IF YOU'RE INTO THAT KIND OF THING.

VARIATIONS:

THE PROPORTIONS CAN BE VARIED A LOT, ALTHOUGH CINNAMON SHOULD DOMINATE. SOME RECIPES GIVE MORE EMPHASIS ON THE CARDOMOM, SOME BUMP UP THE CLOVES OR NUTMEG. DO NOT SKIP THE BLACK AND WHITE PEPPER: IT MAKES IT. FOR MORE INTENSITY, USE TOASTED WHOLE SEEDS.

WARNING:

GO EASY ON THE AMOUNTS YOU USE IN RECIPES. FOR GINGERBREAD OR SPECULAAS, YOU'LL USE A TABLESPOON+ OF THIS, BUT FOR ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO DIAL IT DOWN.
