Spotlight Spice – Pumpkin Pie Spice

Ah, Pumpkin Pie Spice. Every fall it takes over our lives. (Not that we mind, though!) Our Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend has all the flavors you love mixed and ready to go.

I (Anna) tried my first Pumpkin Pie Spice latte this year, and I have to say I’m a fan. Add this spice blend to your coffee grounds before you brew, and get that “fancy coffee shop” taste at home. Add a little Pumpkin Pie Spice to your batch of zucchini bread, carrot muffins or pancakes for a nice autumnal touch at your fall brunch.

Sweets not your thing? Sprinkle Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend ($5.10 for a 1/2 Cup jar) over root vegetables before roasting or blend with olive oil for a fall salad. We here at AllSpice particularly like it on grain and berry salads. Toss with fried chickpeas or pumpkin seeds for a great after school snack. (Or work, adults need to eat too!)

Oh – and of course you can always use Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend to make a pumpkin pie! Rule of thumb: we recommend 2-3 teaspoons of Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend for a 9 inch pie.
