This time of year, everything seems to be “Pumpkin Spice” flavored, doesn’t it? You really can’t be without a jar of these magical spices during the fall season or you risk missing out on all the pumpkin goodness that fall has to offer! If you’re running a little short and haven’t been able to get to the grocery store to pick up a new jar of pumpkin spice, don’t worry! You can make your own! Chances are you already have everything that you need on hand and if you don’t, it’s worthwhile to pick all the ingredients up in bulk so you can make just as much pumpkin spice as you need without paying extra for fancy packaging or the fact that this is a fun seasonal product. It’s really just a blend of a few common spices that come together to make something really special!
Whenever I make pumpkin pie or pumpkin-anything, I find I usually stray from the recipe a little bit because the way that they often do the spices in a lot of those recipes is just a little off to me. I played around with this pumpkin spice blend recipe and I think that what I came up with is the absolute best recipe and gets the quantities of everything exactly right… according to my tastes of course!
Here’s what you’ll need for the world best pumpkin spice blend!
In a bowl, mix together:
- 4 Tablespoons Cinnamon
- 2 Teaspoons Ginger
- 1.5 Teaspoons Allspice
- 2.5 Teaspoons Nutmeg
- 2 Teaspoons Cloves
Mix everything together in a bowl until it’s all combined thoroughly and store it in an airtight jar or other container until you’re ready to use it. This recipe makes about 1 cup and it also makes your kitchen smell absolutely amazing while you’re mixing it up!
This is one of those great little projects that makes you feel like you’re really getting into the fall spirit of things but it only takes a few minutes of your time! Definitely try this one out if you’re going to be doing some fall baking anytime soon!
