I want to make a proper english christmas cake, can anyone tell me where to get the spices? Also, are they the same spices for mulled wine?
The recipe that I know for mixed spice is cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, though I suspect there will be variations depending where people come from! I got a friend to bring me over mix from the UK.
For mulled wine I have used this Jamie Oliver recipe - http://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/recipe/jamie-s-mulled-wine
So, I can see mulled wine has quite a few extra spices in there. Any idea where to start getting this stuff?
mercadona have a good range of spices but to get better value for money try going into one of the moroccan grocery/butcher shops, they usually have loads to choose from
