    I’m not even exaggerating.

    Put 5 spices in a bowl and mix. Done.

    PRO TIP: Dried spices do expire and pask the most flavor the closest they are to be opened. Most will start to degrade by 6-12 months.

    To bring out the most flavor, rub the spice together between your palms before adding to a recipe. This brings out the natural flavors and oils.

    This homemade spice mix can be used to make so many different recipes beyond your classic pumpkin pie. Just to name a few:

    Questions you might have about how to make pumpkin spice:

    Can I adjust the amounts of the spices? Yes! By all means, add extra of the ones you love and omit the ones you don’t. Make it your own proprietary blend.

    How long does it last? For about 6 months at a standard room temperature if kept dry and in an airtight plastic container.

    Can I use it in other recipes? Yes, in fact pumpkin spice is basically the same thing as apple spice. Use it in any recipe that calls for these traditional fall spices. Don’t limit yourself just to Thanksgiving pies.

    Just to name a few… cranberry pie, caramel apples, sweet potato pie, add to maple syrup or even butter for a delicious flavored butter. Blend it with brown sugar for a French toast topper, sprinkle on vanilla meringue pie or on top of any Thanksgiving desserts.
