Quick Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice (with Cardamom!)

Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice with Cardamom | OUR NOURISHING ROOTS

Pumpkin pie spice is a handy blend to have on hand in the kitchen, especially if you mean to make any pies, cookies, or fall-themed treats this autumn.  You can buy pre-made spice blends at the grocery store, but since I buy my spices in bulk already, I find that it’s easier to blend up a quick jar myself.

Plus, most pumpkin pie spice blends are only cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice.  But I really like to add more spices to my blend to round it out a little more, like cloves and cardamom.  Especially cardamom!  

Equipment Needed:

Pumpkin Pie Spice with Cardamom

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon freshly grated nutmeg
2 teaspoons ground allspice
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground cardamom (get all your organic, non-irradiated spices here)

  1. Spoon each spice into a small bowl and whisk together until well blended.
  2. Store at room temperature in a jar with a tight-fitted lid.

  3. I love the addition of cardamom. I would never have thought to include that. I shared this on G+.
