What Is Pumpkin Pie Spice?

Trust me, I did not grow up in Ukraine eating pumpkin pie spice anything.

As I started iFOODreal and naturally browsing other food blogs, I saw everything pumpkin popping up in late August. And I was like “You want me to add what? What is pumpkin pie spice?”.

As I found out, pumpkin pie spice is a spice that is added to anything made with pumpkin puree. So, I set myself on a grocery trip mission to find one.

What Is Wrong with Store Bought One?

As soon as I read the ingredients label at the store, I knew I need to come up with a substitute. My problem with store bought pumpkin pie spice is not only the price…

And it’s not only about the convenience of making homemade pumpkin pie spice any time you find out you are out. And you feel like baking pumpkin cookies.

My problem is sulphites. A preservative that is added basically to all spices and wine. There is nothing I can do about wine. So, the goal is to reduce consumption of sulphites in everything else haha.

What Is Pumpkin Pie Spice Made of?

4 or 5 simple spices 99% you have on hand right now. Quality spices make the most fragrant pumpkin pie spice mix.

  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • Ginger
  • Cloves

If you have allspice, add it as well. If you don’t – don’t sweat it. Done it many times.
