What is great about this recipe is that most people already have these spices in their cabinet. If not, you can pick them up at your local grocery store. Use quality spices for this recipe in order to get the best outcome. Cheaper spices tend to be lacking in flavor. This results in a weak spice mixture.
- 1 ½ Teaspoons Allspice
- 3 ½ Tablespoons Cinnamon
- 2 ½ Teaspoons Nutmeg

Easy Tip: If you would like, you can add cloves to the mixture. Not everyone likes them, so I suggest only adding cloves if you know for sure you already like them. ½ teaspoon should be plenty for this specific mixture.
