Now that fall is in full swing, it’s all things pumpkin, the vegetable that makes good pie. But that pumpkin flavour is all about the spice, as pumpkin on its own is, well it’s a vegetable. But once you add those spices, that warm custardy flavour from every bite of a good pumpkin pie is transformative.

Pumpkin spice is simply a combination of spices like ground cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, etc. Really, it’s all about the ratios and what you prefer. I like mine to have a slight hint of a bite, so that is why I finish mine with a hint of pepper. I’m also a traditionalist at heart, so I include a touch of mace to round out flavour. In that same regard is why include cloves. You can play with the ratios yourself to customize it to you. The key thing is that cinnamon is your most dominant spice, then ginger, allspice, etc. In fact, whatever your ratios, Cinnamon should be just a tad more than all your other spices put together, but not much more.

The other key thing is to use fresh spices. If you can’t remember when that jar of allspice was acquired, but the jar you have is no longer the branding that company uses, for the love of all things sweet, throw it out. Using spices that are years old are shaving your legs with old razor blades. Yuck. Rather than enjoying a full bodied flavour, you’ll be tasting a flat, suspicious spice, that is the culprit of why whatever you just made is devoid of what it is supposed to be and maybe even why it tastes off. Lecture complete.

What I like to do is at the beginning of fall and the pumpkin themed baking is about to  begin, I make a larger batch of this for pumpkin pie spice and use it in all of my recipes. 

Blending my owns saves a bit of money, makes it fresher, and I get to tailor the flavour.
