French Four Spice blend, not to be confused Jamaican allspice (or quatre-épices), is a traditional blend used in classical French cuisine. There are many variations and some even incorporate cinnamon. For a long time, it has been used in the making of charcuteries such as sausages or country patés. It also lends itself well to meat-based sautés, stocks and wine sauces. Its peppery fragrance is rich and is reminiscent of spices traditionally used during the Holidays. Sometimes used in desserts such as Gingerbreads.
French Four Spice blend combines well with red wine-based dishes or honey. It can also be used – sparingly – in muffins, banana bread, apple compotes or poached fruit. This blend is equally delicious when used in cooking carrots, sweet potatoes and squash.
Ingredients : ginger, white pepper, nutmeg, cloves.
