Homemade Pumpkin Spice

Whilst for maximum flavour when making your blends, I usually advise using whole spices, sometimes this is not always practical or you may not have them available. In these cases it's perfectly fine to use pre-ground spices.

Ingredients: (makes about 4 tbsp)

3 tbsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp ground ginger
2 tsp ground cloves
2 tsp grated nutmeg

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


Grate the nutmeg and mix with the other ingredients, that's it! Couldn't be easier. But...

...for extra taste and freshness, gently roast the cloves and cinnamon first before grinding and combining with the other spices, this really cranks up the flavour and taste.

See cooking with spices for "step-by-step" info and photos on roasting and grinding spices.

And as with all spice mixes and blends, store in an airtight jar out of direct sunlight.

Homemade Pumpkin Pie

Now you've got your fresh pumpkin spice, what do you do with it? As it's nearly Thanksgiving why not try it with pumpkin pie?


1 x 9 inch unbaked pastry shell (or make your own pastry)
2 eggs
1 cup canned or pre-cooked pumpkin
½ cup brown sugar
½ tsp salt
2 tbsp all-purpose flour (plain)
1 tbsp pumpkin spice
1 cup evaporated milk
½ cup chopped nuts (optional)

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon

Directions: Preheat your oven to 200°C (390°F).

Beat the eggs. In a bowl, combine the pumpkin, milk, salt, flour, sugar and pumpkin pie spice. Mix in the eggs, and if using, the nuts and pour into the pastry shell.

Place in your oven and cook for 40-45 minutes.

Let cool and serve with a little whipped cream.
