Powder Fort

Lots of Medieval recipes call for a spice blend called powder fort. This seems to have been a “house blend”, and so varied enormously. This is my interpretation.

I have swapped out some harder to find ingredients with related species or similar tasting ones (which seemed pretty reasonable).

Flavour-wise, it’s kind of Christmas-meets-Moroccan? Very good, whatever it is.

  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
