Pumpkin Pie Mix

This is a simple blend of spices and is perfect for adding to all your puddings and desserts not just pumpkin pie.

Note: If you only have ground spices you can use those. Just reduce the amount you use by half.

Ingredients: (makes 4 tbsp)

3-4 inch piece of cinnamon stick
1 tbsp ground ginger
1 tbsp grated nutmeg
1 tbsp whole allspice berries
2 tsp whole cloves

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Break up the cinnamon stick and, in your spice grinder or mill, grind along with the allspice berries and cloves

  • Sieve into a bowl

  • Mix in the ginger and nutmeg and store in an airtight jar out of direct sunlight

Use within 2-3 months

You can lightly toast the cloves and berries before grinding and mixing with the nutmeg and ginger.

Build a Website & Earn Money!

Would you like to build your own website?

Maybe you have a hobby, knowledge to share or even make things you'd like to sell.

A year ago I had no idea about building a website. And now I'm sharing my herbs and spices knowledge and earning a few extra dollars along the way!

Have a quick look at these links below, and don't worry if you know nothing about website building. I certainly didn't...

Build It!

Until Next Month,
