Storing and Tips

  • Container: I prefer to store all spices in tight screw on lid glass jars (Mason jars are perfect!) for freshness. I find plastic does not do as good of a job.
  • Where: Store in a cool dry place like pantry or a spice drawer away from direct sunlight.
  • How long: This amount usually lasts me about 1-2 years. If it clumps, just whisk with a fork or shake in a jar.
  • Yield: This pumpkin pie spice recipe yields about 6 tablespoons of pumpkin pie spice. As a rule of thumb, I always use at least 1 tbsp per recipe.
  • Substitute amount: Follow the recipe and use the amount it calls for – homemade or store bought pumpkin spice have very similar flavor profile.

  • Coffee: Stir in 1 tsp with coffee grinds right in the basket of a coffee maker and hit Brewing.
