Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp ground cinnamon or 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 tbsp black peppercorn
  • 1 tbsp dried thyme

    Thyme

    This popular herb grows in Europe, especially the Mediterranean, and is a member of the mint…

  • 2 tsp allspice berries
  • 1½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ½ nutmeg

Method

  1. Toast the whole spices in a small pan until they are aromatic and have turned a shade or two darker. Don’t be tempted to skip this stage, as it really enhances the flavours.

  2. Tip into a spice grinder (or use a pestle and mortar), then add the ready-ground spices and dried herbs if required, and crush to a fine powder. Store in a sealed jar for up to six months.

Does this mean half of a whole nutmeg or half a tablespoon?
