When creating this spice blend, I was inspired by my childhood growing up in a West Indian household, which is why it’s named Harvest Spice; for the cozy feeling of home and nostalgia the aroma of this blend invokes. The spices I used for this blend were all part of the dishes we enjoyed, especially during the holidays when the sweet scent of cinnamon, warm clove, citrusy cardamom, aromatic nutmeg, and peppery allspice permeated the air. I wanted this blend to pull double duty in the kitchen, so I added earthy coriander and the subdued bite of white pepper to bridge the gap between sweet and savory.

This incredibly versatile spice blend has limitless uses:
Add Harvest Spice to dry ingredients for sweet treats, then follow the recipe as instructed.When preparing your savory dishes, add the spices after the aromatics have softened and sautee briefly to avoid burning. This method allows the flavors to bloom and be efficiently distributed throughout the dish.

Citrus, earthy, and pepper, which gives way to a warm sweetness when heat is applied.
Harvest Spice Blend has a reddish-brown color. The blend darkens to a rich brown when heat is applied, and the flavors become balanced.
Pair Harvest Spice with aromatics such as ginger and onion or other spices like cumin, turmeric, aleppo, or cayenne for savory dishes. It can also replace cinnamon or other spices in baked goods. Add a bit of ground ginger for a flavor close to gingerbread spice.
Add to sweet and savory dishes such as fall fruits, meat, and poultry. This spice blend is perfect for your holiday baking but can be used year-round with summer stone fruits and citrus.
