Pumpkin Pie Spice

PumpkinPieSpiceJarsbfLOFolk who know me are well aware that I loathe/abhor/hate-with-every-fiber-of-my-being/really don’t care for pumpkin pie.

Still, Rich likes it, and it IS Thanksgiving, so I don’t begrudge him his seasonally appropriate dessert.

I DO, however, refuse to spend good money on something called ‘Pumpkin Pie Spice’ when a nice batch can be whipped together from stuff in the spice cabinet in, oh, about 30 seconds, AND, by making it yourself, you can customize the blend to your tastes.

PumpkinPieSpicesbfLOFor example, we have some PRIMO powdered/ground clove, cinnamon, and ginger, but I dropped the ball on the nutmeg, so cut that back a bit in my blend in favor of this really nice batch o’ cloves I picked up this past weekend – is that so wrong?

•1-1/2 tsp Ceylon cinnamon
•1/2 tsp ground cloves
•1/2 tsp ground ginger
•1/4 tsp nutmeg

Shake or whisk the ingredients together in a container and put aside to flavor your pie.

I may loathe/abhor/hate-with-every-fiber-of-my-being/really don’t care for the pie – but I could sit back and enjoy the smell of this blend of spices all day long.
