The key to making quinine at home is to have a large quantity of it handy. While you can make quinine at home, it’s probably not something you want to do every day, and in most cases, you’ll want to make it a few times per week.
The simplest way to make quinine at home is to use a mortar and pestle (or a spice or spice mill, depending on how good you want this stuff). I recommend using a mortar and pestle for this because it’s easier to blend up the liquid, and it’s also just easier to control the quantity. The spice mill is a bit trickier to use, but it’s definitely worth a try.
Quinine is a little more subtle, but I think that’s because its more consistent in its application.
The good news is that you can make quinine in your kitchen, but if you don’t have a mortar and pestle, you can also find some old spice jars for home use. I’ve used old jars that were never cleaned, so they were full of the original spice contents of my kitchen, including that lovely cinnamon flavor. Just be sure to keep your jars out of direct sunlight and keep them sealed.
The jars are probably not what you want to use for making quinine, but I have found that it is quite effective. The reason why I use them is because they are easy to find and the spices are inexpensive, so I’ve been able to experiment with different batches and styles to see what works best.
They are easy to find, but what you want to do is carefully sift through all those jars and be sure to separate the spices from the cinnamon. It is best to keep them in a sealed container because they can’t be re-used. Even then though, most of the spices will be gone, so don’t worry about wasting any of them.
