  • 4 3-inch sticks of cinnamon = 4 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 whole nutmeg = 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
  • 15-20 whole allspice = 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 14-16 whole cloves = 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 4 teaspoons ground ginger


You will need:

  1. Hammer or meat-tenderizer
  2. Spice grinder or clean coffee grinder
  3. Microplane or nutmeg grater


  1. Pound cinnamon sticks with a hammer or meat tenderizer to make smaller pieces. In a spice grinder or clean coffee grinder, combine cinnamon stick pieces, whole cloves, whole allspice and grind into powder. Leave it in the grinder and set aside.
  2. Grate nutmeg on microplane or nutmeg grater and add to cinnamon spice mix in grinder. Freshly ground nutmeg is much more “lofty” than the kind you buy in the store, and much more aromatic! Measure this. If you like nutmeg, use 2 teaspoons. If you aren’t as much a fan, use only 1 1/2 teaspoons.
  3. Add ground ginger to grinder and give everything a whirl to combine.
