Chai Spice Blend

1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground cardamom
1 tsp ground cloves
3/4 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon ground 3 peppercorn blend (black, pink & white)

1/4 piece vanilla bean*

Stir all spices together in small bowl until evenly blended. Store in tightly covered container.
*Add vanilla bean to container for Oregon Chai

This spice blend lends itself to limitless possibilities. Steep it in tea. Sprinkle into hot cereals. Substitute when recipes call for cinnamon or "pumpkin pie spice".
