Ground mixed spice is traditionally used in Christmas baking, and it’s wonderful in chutneys and marinades too.
Grinding spices in your Thermomix gives an excellent result. Most blenders and grinders take too long and consequently overheat the spices which can spoil the aromas and flavours. Thermomix spice grinding is so fast that the spices are not heated, and the essential oils are released for delicious aromas and flavours in your cooking and baking.
This recipe is suitable for Thermomix TM6, TM5 and TM31.
- Grind all ingredients 1 min/speed 10.
- Check the texture – if a finer texture is desired, scrape down sides of TM bowl with spatula then grind again 10 sec/speed 10. Transfer ground mixed spice (a pastry brush is useful) onto a piece of paper (I use a sheet of paper from my printer), then funnel the mixed spice into a sterilised small glass jar. Close jar with a sterilised non-plastic lid – see 1st tip. Use in recipes as directed. Keeps well up to 6 months in a dark cupboard.
