a simple & easy 6-ingredient recipe for homemade chai spice mix with cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, cloves, nutmeg, & allspice. make a batch to keep on your spice rack for all of your chai spiced fall & holiday baking this year!
Add all listed ingredients to an airtight container or jar. I like to use these mason jars, or these Weck jars. Seal the jar, and shake to combine. Store on your spice rack, at room temperature, for up to 1 year. Enjoy!
- Buy online, or in bulk to save money! Buying the spices you need to make chai spice can be a little costly, especially if you rely on grocery store prices. Cardamom & allspice, especially, are really expensive when you buy them in the little jars in the spice aisle at the grocery store. I suggest ordering the spices online, &/or buying them in bulk to get extra bang for your buck. You can make a double or triple batch of chai spice – extras make great hostess gifts! My favorite spices are linked above.
- Make it your own: I use the 6 spices i do to keep this recipe simple & easy to remember. A few things you could add in to add extra flavor, if you’re into that kinda thing, are ½ tablespoon of ground black pepper. A split vanilla bean pod is another fun way to add tons of flavor to this chai spice. Cut a whole vanilla bean pod down the middle, and submerge it into the chai spices. As it sits on your spice rack, the vanilla’s flavor will infuse itself into the chai spice. Yum!
