Pumpkin Pie Spice

Pumpkin Pie Spice


I’ve been using premixed pumpkin pie spice in my fall recipes a lot lately.

Maybe because I have a giant 1 lb jar of it and I’m trying to use it up!

Before I bought this premixed concoction, I would always make my own blend of the 3 (sometimes 5) essential spices that make up Pumpkin Pie Spice which are Ground: Cinnamon, Ginger, Nutmeg, Allspice and Cloves.

I say “sometimes 5” because not everyone likes to include the Allspice and Cloves.

You can of course leave those 2 out if you don’t have them or perhaps you don’t like the very pronounced spicy-ness they lend to recipes.  But I do love them in there!

I also tend to add a bit more nutmeg than most people, and I will do that in the form of fresh grated as an extra little kick in my fall recipes

but below I will list the spices in ratios as they are most commonly combined and let you be the judge of adding a pinch more of this one or that one!
