1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice

Mash potatoes in large bowl. Add butter, bourbon, orange juice, brown sugar, salt and pumpkin pie spice; beat until fluffy-smooth.
Spoon into a buttered 6-cup baking dish. Sprinkle marshmallows on top the last 5 mins of baking time so they don’t burn.
Bake at 350ºF for 45 minutes or until lightly browned.

(Traditional Old Fashioned English Pudding Spice)

Mixed spice is a blend of sweet spices traditionally used in English cooking.
It is essential for fruit cakes, Christmas plum pudding, mincemeat and hot cross buns;
Mixed spice is also a great addition to other fruity desserts such as apple & fruit pies, crumbles and compotes.
Try it in cream cheese desserts, pickles, chutneys and mulled wine too.
Make it up and buy the spices needed in small quantities, as the mixture soon loses its full rich flavour.
Allspice, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and ginger are the usual blend of spices.
Cardamom and coriander are sometimes added.

1 Small Jar
2 teaspoons allspice
2 inches piece cinnamon sticks
2 teaspoons cloves
2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cardamom (optional)
1 teaspoon ground coriander (optional)

Grind the allspice, cinnamon and cloves to a fine powder
and then mix well with the ground nutmeg and ginger.
Add the finely ground cardamom and corainder seeds, if using, and mix well again.
Use at once or store in an airtight jar in a cool dry place, and away from light.
