During this time of year, we use a lot of this stuff! Ollie likes to make lots of pumpkin spice snacks and the premixed pumpkin spice is expensive! Here’s Ollie’s Pumpkin Spice blend. It is milder for kids, but you can always tweak the recipe to your liking. You can get the spices at a store that has a bulk foods section, such as Central Market, it will be more fresh and much more inexpensive than pre-bottled spices..
You will need:
- 1 airtight jar to put the mix in
- 1 part ground allspice
- 1 part ground nutmeg
- 1 part ground ginger
- 1 part ground cloves
- 6 parts cinnamon
Measure out the ingredients and pour it into your jar.
Shake it well to mix it up.
That’s it! Use it in your next recipe and see the difference fresh spices gives!
