Gingerbread spice mix

A silver spoon full of gingerbread spice mix and a plate of the mixed spices in the background


  • 2 tsp Ginger (Ground)
  • 1 1/2 tsp Ceylon Cinnamon (Ground)
  • 1/2 tsp Anise seed (Ground)
  • 1/4 tsp Clove (Ground)
  • 1/4 tsp All Spice (Ground)
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg (Ground)
  • 1/4 tsp Cardamon (Ground)
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper (Ground)


  1. Gather all your ingredients. If all of them are not already ground or not ground finely enough (like black pepper), take the time to grind them in a spice grinder, with grater, or in mortar and pestle.
  2. Measure out and conbine the spices in a bowl.
  3. Store in an air tight container for up to a month. It may last longer but won't be as potent or flavorful.
  4. You can double or triple the recipe as needed. The above is enough for one batch of gingerbread cookies.
