Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice

 pumpkin-pie-spice

Pumpkin Pie Spice is synonymous with the flavor of autumn and is a taste so well associated with Thanksgiving.  It imparts that special favor and aroma to pies, soups, stews, roasts and salad toppings.  Most recipes call for just a bit of this spice and it is comprised of spices that you probably have in your spice cabinet, anyways.  So, why buy a new bottle if you can easily make just what you need?

This recipe can be used to prepare your own homemade pumpkin pie spice.  It is a simple blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and ground cloves or allspice that can be easily adjusted to your taste and recipe.

INGREDIENTS

1/4 cup ground cinnamon

1 tablespoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons ginger
2 teaspoons allspice or ground cloves

DIRECTIONS

Add the spices to a spice container or glass baby food jar.   Shake to combine.

NOTES

Play with the proportions to suit your own taste.

Add a unique label to your pumpkin pie spice jar.  Using glue stick, I adhered a custom simpletowow.com  label to an empty spice jar.  If you would like to print your own simpletowow spice jar label, feel free print  out this pumpkin-pie-spice-label   The paper label also allows you to jot down the date when you prepared the mix so that you can keep your pantry fresh and organized.
