Pumpkin: Pantry Staple Spotlight – Pumpkin Pie Spice

How to make pumpkin pie spice

As autumn sets in properly, I spend my days looking forward to Halloween. Wanna know why?

Pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere – in a very good way. In all their delicious orange, rich flavoured goodness. And I get an excuse to indulge in eating them, in drooling over recipe books and fab food blogs and in planning my extensive pumpkin centred menus (at least in my head anyway).

I start my marathon pumpkin madness by whisking up a nice big batch of pumpkin pie spice. It smells gorgeous as I am making it up which leads me to the next step –  a pumpkin pie smoothie. Not that I am a little bit obsessive or anything. No, no, no.

This pumpkin spice is one of my pantry staple spice mixes and actually goes in more than just pumpkin pie and smoothies. Stews, cookies, muffins, pancakes, roasted vegetables have all featured it.

OK people, hold me back from dreaming of my next pumpkin recipe. At least till the next post.

So what is your autumn obsession?

The first recipe in my pantry staple spotlight on pumpkins. Please check the others out.

  1. I’ve always been meaning to make my own pumpkin pie spice, so thanks for sharing this! I love cinnamon, so I think I’d sneak in a little bit more of that into my mix. I can think of so many uses for this!

  2. I think pumpkin pie spice is my favorite part of eating pumpkin 😉 I’ve never adored the flavor of pumpkin, but I love it when spiced and baked into things… I think my fall obsession would be butternut squash…

    This is amazing! I’m obsessed with pumpkin flavor, so this seems right up my alley! Curious to see how you use it in upcoming dishes, I’m going to be copying some, for sure!:-)

  4. I am fortunate that my cousin has a pumpkin patch so I am able to take as many as I want. I spent this past weekend baking, roasting and boiling. I can seeds and I can chunks of pumpkin for future baking. I also canned some puree for recipes as well. By the end of the weekend the last few pieces of pumpkin hit the crockpot for pumpkin butter and sauce that will also be canned. Some will be given as gifts in Christmas baskets, but I make pumpkin goodies all year as I do love it!

    I love pumpkin spice sprinkled over my porridge in the mornings. Looking forward to seeing your pumpkin recipes and totally know what you mean about getting excited about Halloween. And after Halloween its Guy Fawkes, then Thanksgiving, then Christmas so much to look forward to 🙂
