Medieval Spices


Chilli Salt - very new in Tudor times. Chillies were from South America and brought back with the Conquistadores. They were viewed with suspicion but that was quickly overcome when Tudors realised how tasty they were. Chillies were very expensive so were only able to be bought by the rich and were used sparingly.

Dukes Powder - A mix for cold spiced red wine. Put half the jar into a bottle of red wine and leave for a few days. Filter the wine and keep it in the fridge. This recipe was used in Tudor times as red wine was very variable in quality.

Powder Forte - This was the savoury spice mix of choice in early Tudor times. Use it in any savoury dish, but it's especially good in a stew.

Powder Douce - A sweet spice mix for pies, puddings and cakes.

Farmhouse Kitchen research both the spices and the history. We have scoured the world to bring you spices which are no longer in use. We've brought you Grains of Paradise from West Africa as well as cubebs (a long tailed pepper) and galangale from the exotic east and the Spice Islands.

Enjoy the taste of history!
