German Gingerbread Spice Mix – Lebkuchengewuerz – Neunerlei
The German Gingerbread Spice Mix is consisting of 9 different spices used in Gingerbread and a variety of Christmas cookies. In Germany we call this spice blend Lebkuchengewuerz or Neunerlei.
Ingredients for the Spice Mix:
2 teaspoons of ground:
- cinnamon (Zimt)
- cloves (Nelken)
- coriander, cilantro (Koriander)
- anise (Anis)
- ginger (Ingwer)
- mace (Muskatbluete)
- cardamom (Kardamom)
- nutmeg (Muskatnuss)
- all-spice (Nelkenpfeffer, Piment)
Preparation of the Spice Mix:
If the spices are not available as ground spices, the fruit can be grated or ground. I use a box grater and an electric coffee grinder. Mix the ground spices together. It is easy to double the amount of each spice and to store the leftovers in a canning jar covered with a lid.
