Pumpkin spice brings with it a warm and comforting feeling, bringing to mind the holidays in fall and winter. Whether using it to flavor a pie or for roasting whole pumpkin, the spice you use should be a combination of sweet and savory notes, blending well with the natural, earthy taste of the pumpkin. Creating your own is simple and you'll notice the fresher flavor in all your dishes.
Things You'll Need
- Ground nutmeg
- Ground cinnamon
- Ground cloves
- Ground ginger
- Airtight container or jar
Combine 9 parts cinnamon to 2 parts ginger and 2 parts nutmeg in a bowl. Add 1 1/2 parts each of ground cloves and allspice.
Mix the spices together thoroughly until fully incorporated.
Use your pumpkin spice just as you would any store-bought brand. Store the pumpkin spice mix in an airtight container. Fill the container three-fourths of the way full or less to avoid spilling the spice.
