Gingerbread Spice Mix (Lebkuchengewuerz) (germanfood)

2 T ground cinnamon
2 t ground cloves
1/2 t ground allspice
1/4 t ground nutmeg
1/2 t ground coriander
1/2 t ground cardamom
1/2 t ground ginger
1/2 t ground anise seed
1/2 t ground star anise

If you have whole spices (which have a longer shelf life), place the spices in a cleaned outknife coffee grinder (one that looks like a food processor inside, not a burr grinder) and grind until fine. Sift the ground spices through a fine sieve to remove large pieces and add to other ground spices. When your spices are ground, mix them together thoroughly and place in an airtight container to store. Yield: 3 1/2 tablespoons.
