Do you make your own spice mixes? It's easier than you might think and the possibilities are endless. I was making a batch of pumpkin muffins this morning and realized that I hadn't shared this spice mix here on the blog. Even more than the fact this is a frugal alternative to those tiny jars of pre-mixed spices, I love that I can vary it according to my preferences.
I'm not a huge fan of clove and allspice, so I keep them subtle. I adore cardamom, so I put a hint of it into this mix. These spices are so fragrant, just opening the jar reminds me of pumpkin pies and warm apple crisps. The recipe below is for a small batch of the spice mix and I'm also including a larger batch recipe along with the printable links. That way you can feel free to play with the smaller amounts and find your perfect combination.
Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
Optional: 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom
Mix spices together and store in an airtight container. Enjoy!
