Pumpkin spice blend is simple to make at home; if you're like me, you already have the ingredients to make it. For my recipe, I have used cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger. I excluded the allspice which is typically included simply because I didn't have any.
Use this spice mix for any of the season's pumpkin recipes like my pumpkin spice crème caramel! Happy cooking!
Morter and pestle
Yield: ⅓ cup spice mix
Preparation time: 15 minutes
2 tbsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp ground ginger
1½ tsp ground cloves
1½ tsp ground nutmeg
Mix all the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Store in a sealed container.
I used whole cloves, ground using a mortar and pestle. You can use preground cloves as well, I just prefer the flavor of freshly ground.
I had whole nutmeg and used the Microplane to grate it fresh.
