Most of my pumpkin recipes also have in them pumpkin spice. This is something readily available in some countries and is basically a mix of yummy spices that set off the pumpkin taste really well! I had a bit of trouble finding it ready made in the U.K. and so I decided to make my own. Now, I make a big jar of it and use it whenever I use pumpkin! My house is currently filled with pumpkins after a recent trip to PYO Pumpkins, check out my vlog here!
- 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons ground ginger
- 2 teaspoons nutmeg
- 1 ½ teaspoons ground mixed spice
- 1 ½ teaspoons ground cloves
Mix well. Keep in a jar and use as and when needed.
