Make Your Own Pumpkin Pie Spice

November 19, 2011

Making your own spice blends is the only way to ensure you are getting the best and most flavorful spices.  I recommend visiting your nearest spice shop and become friendly with the owners.  They will guide you to the best and most fragrant spices.  This year I made my own pumpkin pie spice mix and wow what a difference!  It was like those warm flavors were lying dormant in the pre-mixed stuff.  It is so easy, there is no reason you can't do this at home too. 


1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg (ground from a whole nutmeg)
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp ground cloves


In a small bowl, stir together all the spices.


P.s. You can use this mix on veggies, meats,  desserts, or even in breads!
