Gingerbread Spice

Whether you want to make gingerbread man cookies for the kids, gingerbread merengues or gingerbread spice cake – gingerbread spice can be used for all sorts of tasty dishes and desserts. Don’t believe gingerbread spice can compliment savoury meals? Think again. You can add gingerbread spice to your honey glazed meatballs or make a gingerbread spice pork stew!

Holiday Spice

If you are not familiar with what holiday spice is - it’s a combination of traditional holiday spices such as nutmeg, cardamom, cinnamon, sage, ginger, anise, and cloves. Of course, every home cook creates their holiday spice mix differently, but those mentioned above are popular choices for spices around the holiday season. This unique spice mix can be used in mulled wines, desserts, eggnog, cookies, pumpkin pie mix, on roasted vegetables, waffles and so much more.

Mulling Spice

Commonly used to offer some heat to mulled wines and apple cider, mulling spice is usually a combination of allspice, dried fruit, cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Sometimes cardamom, anise and other more peppery flavoured ingredients are added to the mix.

These aromatic spices will leave you feeling all warm and tingly during the colder days of this upcoming holiday season. What do you put in your holiday spice? Let us know below!
