Pumpkin Pie Spice Recipe Ingredients
How to Make Pumpkin Pie Spice
Gather your ingredients and mix them well in a small bowl. Spoon the spice mixture into an airtight container. Or, place all your ingredients in a jar, seal it and shake it like crazy until it’s uniform in color.
I like to use little spice jars to store my homemade mixes. You can get cute labels for them or write on the jar with a dry erase marker.
After mixing the spices, they should last for about 6 months when stored in a cool, dry place. You can technically use it after that time period but the flavor might not be as potent.
Why Make Your Own?
First, you probably already have everything you need to make your own pumpkin pie spice. Why buy a seperate item when you have all the components at home?
Second, you can also control the ingredients. No MSG or weird ingredients here. And you can change around the amounts a bit if you really love the sweetness of cinnamon or the strong flavor of cloves.
Lastly, it’s way cheaper to make it at home. Especially if you keep these ingredients stocked in your kitchen already.
