Fruit and spice combos

platypus Apr 11, 2008 04:15 PM

Does anyone know where on the web I could find a list of fruit and the spices they pair well with? I've been experimenting with various fuit add-ins to a stardard muffin recipe, and I'd love to have a handy chart that would cover the usual combinations (like apple and cinnamon and pear and ginger) but also give me some new ideas. Thanks!

      That's just what I was searching for. Thanks.

      lgss, coincidentially I made apricot muffins (which some orange flavors as well) this weekend, and cardamom is the spice I used. They turned out pretty well, though next time I would increase the cardamom (I used 1/2 Tbsp for 12 muffins and it's too subtle).

      Thanks again!

        I always think of lavender going well with lemon, too.

      One of our cookbooks has a peach cardamom recipe.
