Make Pumpkin Spice at Home

Making your own pumpkin spice blend at home is really quite easy. It’s a blend of five spices that you probably already have sitting in your pantry. I decided to finally make my own pumpkin pie spice, also known as simply, pumpkin spice. When purchased in a grocery store, pumpkin spice will cost you around $5 for a mere 2 or 3 tablespoons. Making your own spice combination from your “spice leftovers” is a cost-effective way to use up your pantry leftovers. Making this spice combination always comes in handy during the holidays.

This spice is a mixture of cinnamon, cloves, allspice, ginger and nutmeg. Add all of the spices to an airtight container and store it until you’re ready to use it. I tend to use Mason jars and buy them in bulk so I always have a jar that is at the ready.

Having this spice ready to use at a moment’s notice is incredibly convenient. Pumpkin pie spice is a spice combination that is often used in many different holiday dishes, from pumpkin pie and pumpkin loaf to pumpkin spiced coffees.

Ingredients for Pumpkin Spice:

  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoons ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
