I recently bought this from my local Aldi where it was featured as part of a potential Christmas ingredients display. I often bake and love using sweet spices for my desserts so I thought this would come in handy.
This product is recommended for use on sweeter dishes including puddings and cakes. Potential ideas for use include apple pies, banana cakes, sweet rice puddings, plain or vanilla yoghurts and biscuits. I'm not surprised that the supermarket where I purchased this was advertising it as a Christmas item since it contains many flavours we typically identify with Winter and Christmas desserts. Although I am a vegetarian I have been told you can also use this on certain meat dishes.
The mixed spice comprises of 40% ground cinnamon, 38% ground coriander, caraway, 4% nutmeg, ginger and cloves. It makes up a blend of sweet, warming and tongue tingling spices. It is advised you use generously. The product is suitable for vegetarians.
The product comes in a 28g glass bottle. The bottle may be recycled after use. The top can be clicked open and a special sprinkle designed selection of dispensing holes release the brown-orange powder. The spices have a delicious aroma and really do make particular desserts seem more appetizing.
I paid around 99p for my bottle which is a fair bit cheaper than other stores where the average price is around £1.69. This is a product I'll get a lot of use from and I would definitely buy again in the future.
