How To Make Pumpkin Pie Spice

It’s pumpkin season, which means it’s time for pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin soup, pumpkin spice muffins – basically everything that I love. This means I’ll be using a whole bunch of pumpkin pie spice this month and after someone asked me what exactly pumpkin pie spice was, I figured I should share. Pumpkin spice doesn’t in fact have any pumpkin in it at all – it’s just a blend of spices traditionally used in pumpkin pie, which means it goes well in pretty much any pumpkin dish. Ingredients:
  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. ginger
  • 1 tsp. cloves
  • ½ tsp allspice
  • ½ tsp mace
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  1. Mix all the spices together in a small bowl and store in an airtight container

It also costs less than the store bought stuff, and generally has more flavour (although that may just be my bias).
