Not only is making pumpkin pie spice from scratch easy, it can also save you money! Made with comforting fall flavors, you will be in love!
Bulk Items Used: Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Ginger, Cloves
It's fall, and that means we've entered "Pumpkin Everything" season. The funny thing to me is that pumpkin itself, isn't the flavor everyone loves. Have you tried plain canned pumpkin lately?
The magic happens when you mix the pumpkin with a delicious combo of fall feeling spices--cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves. Because this spice blend was first used in pumpkin pie recipes, it has been lovingly coined "pumpkin pie spice." But you'll find it in all sorts of recipes, like oatmeal, bread, muffins, cookies and more.
Somewhere along the way, spice companies had the brilliant idea to start combining these spices and selling them together in one container. After all, it's much more convenient than having to measure out 4 different spices and adding it to your recipe. However, convenience comes with a cost. 2 oz jar of pumpkin spice costs $6.13 at my grocery store! Making the same amount at home costs less than 1 dollar!
