   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    5      tsp           black peppercorns
    2      tsp           grated nutmeg
    1      tsp           doves
    1      tsp           dried ginger
 
 The standard French “four-spice” blend is based on pepper. It is  commonly 
 used in charcuterie and in dishes that need long  simmering, such as stews. 
 Sometimes cinnamon or allspice is used  in the blend.
 
 Grind all the ingredients to a fine powder. In an airtight container,  the 
 mixture will keep for 3-4 months.
