We love pumpkin everything around here, and we don't need an excuse to add a little of our famous homemade pumpkin pie spice to anything we are whipping up in the kitchen. Don't ever buy "store bought" pumpkin-pie spice again. Once you make this, you'll know how easy it is and how much better it tastes.
We start by using our own homegrown pumpkins, but if you don't have any of those, you can use any old sugar pumpkin from your favorite farmers market or pumpkin patch.
Dehydrate your pumpkin using this method here.
Once you have your dehydrated pumpkin, put 1 cup of it into your coffee grinder and grind until it's a very fine powder.
Add ground pumpkin to a pint sized mason jar and add these spices as follows:
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
Shake the mason jar until all of the spices have blended well. It's THAT EASY!
The dehydrated pumpkin that you ground up will help to thicken any recipe as it begins to rehydrate.
Add your homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice to smoothies, cakes, breads, muffins, soups, yogurt, oatmeal and more!
