A Bit More About This Pumpkin Pie Spice Recipe
Homemade pumpkin pie spice has the upper-hand in my opinion because you can tailor it to your specific needs and tastes. With store bought pumpkin pie spice, you’re stuck with their blend. In fact, this is true of all spice blends which is why we mostly avoid them on RAISE.
After looking over our spice mix, you can alter as you see fit. The nice thing is, you have a good example of balanced ratios. Cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allsipce, and cloves are the foundation of pumpkin pie spice. However, you’ll still love a seed free version or ginger free version for those of you who need to adapt.
