Balkenbrij spices for a recipe from bygone days


Balkenbrij spices are used, how could it be otherwise, to make a traditional beam mash or balkenbrij. This meat dish from grandmother's time is eaten not only in the Netherlands but also in Belgium and Germany. Slowly but surely it makes its comeback in our kitchens, or in a slightly more modern shape. There are different ways of preparing this typical regional dish and this can differ slightly from each other. However, every cook agrees that the right seasoning ensures a successful meat product. You can easily order them online here. You can buy the spice mix in a pack size of 450 grams or 900 grams.



What are beam mash spices?


Beam mash spices are the seasoning mix for beam mash in a modern style. The combination of spices used in the past to season the meat was called 'rummelkruid'. This was a mixture of a number of spices such as pepper, nutmeg, clove powder and anise. The balkenbrij spices that you can order online at Natural Spices are very similar. However, anise has made way for allspice. Next to this spice mix you also need buckwheat flour or wheat flour to start preparing the dish. These have binding properties and provide a firm structure so that the meat does not fall apart. You use 5 grams of the seasoning mix per kilo of meat.
