How to make Homemade Gingerbread Spice Mix
I have to tell you that making Homemade Gingerbread Spice is very easy and could be done with just a small mixing bowl and a whisk or fork. However, before you start making this spice, make sure you have all ingredients and a glass jar for storing. Also important to make sure that jar is clean and dry. You do not need any moisture in the spice. When you have everythign ready, only then make spice. In the small mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Make sure that you measure all ingredeints correctly. You can use kitchen scale too. Then mix with the whisk untill all combined. After that, sift mixture through a sifter. This is important step and do not skip it. Transfer gingerbread spice mix to a glass jar and cover with the lid. That is all! Your spice is ready! You can use right away or store for later.
How to store
Store Gingerbread Spice Mix sealed in the glass jar in a dark and dry space. I would recommend to store not more then one year. Spices lose flavor over time and it’s always better to make fresh mix and use it. When you make this spice, do not forget to label the jar with the date and name of this mix.
