Rated 4 out of 5 by plaitedlight from Versatile Good blend; spicy, warm, sweet, and salty. Very easy to customize to individual taste. I had trouble with the mix packing up in the corners and beneath the blade. Perhaps my ginger or sugar were especially moist. If I make again, I will grind the other ingredients some before adding those.

Rated 5 out of 5 by La La from Lots of uses Elle, you can use in pumpkin soup, spiced nuts, on popcorn, sprinkle on acorn squash and bake. Great in caramel popcorn recipes for a twist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ann M from Love it! Hmm...What else can I do with it? I really do love this unique spice mix! The gingersnap cookies are delicious and ginger/spicey, but without too much bite to them, if you know what I mean. This mix seemed kind of pricey to make, and pink peppercorns were a bit hard to find-World Market was the place, but it makes about 2 cups of spice. That's a lot for the money. Question: does Winter Spice need to be refrigerated? It makes so much, it seems like a good idea. Also, I put it in half pint jars, but wondering how do others store this? Uses: I tried a 1/2 teaspoon mixed into oatmeal, yum! I'm going to try it in some herbal tea too. The other reviewer's comments were helpful and I look forward to trying this spice mix with all the things she mentioned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ElleToronto from What else can I use this for?! This is very tasty but what else can I use it for? I only used a tsp in my soup recipe and have a lot leftover. What do I do with it?

Rated 4 out of 5 by Vitamix User from Tastes good, can be used for many things Has a good flavor, but recipe unclear about how many whole cloves to use. I ended up using 1 t ground cloves, but I think approximately 12 whole cloves would work well.
