Pumpkin Spice, from pies to lattes, Pumpkin Spice makes everything nice!
It’s a weather thing. The sun shifts it’s journey and so does our desire for certain flavours. Pumpkin is everywhere this time of year, the humble orange gourde moves easily from savoury to sweet in an instant.
The scent of pumpkin pie has become synonymous with falling leaves and sweaters. I’m frequently amused by the depth of marketing of all things pumpkin spice related – from candles to pizza. (Imma’ skip the pumpkin spice pizza, k?!)
Confession: NOT a pumpkin latte kind of gal, but I do love a tasty slab of pumpkin pie!
This is my favourite blend of Pumpkin Spice. Not too heavy in either cinnamon or clove. Ginger gives it that signature kick while the undertone of nutmeg and allspice gives our house spice blend a rich scent and balanced tone.
You can substitute this spice blend in any of your fall recipes involving apple, pear, pumpkin or sweet potato you can even sprinkle it on your morning oatmeal!Test it in our featured recipe – Super Healthy Pumpkin Muffins – for a dash of fall warm autumn spice.
Why purchase store bought pumpkin spice when you can make this delicious, aromatic blend yourself! It’s an easy and fast addition to your spice cupboard this fall.
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
Combine all spices in a small bowl with a fork or whisk. This recipe makes enough pumpkin spice for approximately four pumpkin pies, or a full season’s worth of spiced lattes!
