Homemade gingerbread spice mix
All gingerbreads are not equal. We Swedes like to consider ourselves as gingerbread connoisseurs, we even have a dedicated day for gingerbread during the holiday month of December. It may sound simple to just blend a few spices together but to spare you the despair of realizing that your cookie could have used just a titch more cloves or a little less ginger, we here at Food Pharmacy’s have saved you the trouble and give you our best homemade gingerbread spice mix, perfectly balanced and perfectly spiced!
And on a side note, we can’t say that we were disappointed when we realized that most “Christmas spices” used are actually rich with nutrients and antioxidants.
Not to mention that our gut bacteria will be most happy if we consume them combined together, such as in this blend. The taste of gingerbread spice with cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and cloves isn’t just liked by Santa and children, but also by our Luke Skywalker’s in the gut. Yeah, jingaling-a-ling!
