Caribbean Spice Mix

Scott Phillips

Yield: Yields about 1 cup.


  • 4 Tbs. ground ginger
  • 4 Tbs. finely ground black pepper
  • 3 Tbs. dried orange peel, ground
  • 1/2 tsp. ground mace
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cloves
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar


  • Mix all the ingredients until well blended.
  • The Caribbean mix makes a great rub for pork and chicken. Create a paste by combining it with olive oil to moisten and then massage it onto the meat. On the dessert side, the same mix can be used as a flavoring for a sugar-and-water syrup used for poaching fresh and dried fruits.
