Pumpkin Spice

If you are in the US, you are probably about to see this stuff EVERYWHERE and in everything. I have never had a pumpkin spice latte and I'm pretty sure I've never even had a real pumpkin pie. It's not a "thing" here. I was super intrigued by the concept of pumpkin spice and did some research into what went into it. I love spice. LOVE LOVE. I enjoy learning how to use spice in new ways, creating my own, bringing out the best flavours in foods. So, of course, I made my own pumpkin spice. It's actually quite easy.


  • 2 1/2 Tbsp. Cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. Ginger powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. Clove powder
  • 1/4 tsp. Cardamom

Mix everything in a small glass jar. Shake. Done. This makes roughly five tablespoons of spice and the carbs come to 10.4g for the whole mixture. 2g per tablespoon - be careful with how liberally you use this. It adds up quickly.
