DIY Groceries-Two Useful Spice Combos

Good Monday.  Welcome to my new followers.  Thanks to all who take the time to read my blog.  I hope that you find the information here useful.


This time of year, one may come across a recipe that calls for Apple Pie Spice or Pumpkin Pie Spice.  It is not necessary to rush out to the grocery store to purchase these items.  Both can be made at home with spices that are usually available in most kitchens.  Some instructions say just to sub cinnamon, but that will not give quite the same taste as using these combinations instead.  Both these recipes make relatively small quantities so that one doesn't use up all the basic spices making them.

Apple Pie Spice
2 T.  cinnamon
1 t.  nutmeg
1/2  t . allspice
1/2  t.  ginger


Note:  all spices are in ground form.  Combine all ingredients and mix well.  Place in tightly covered container.   Makes  2 2/3  T.

Pumpkin Pie Spice
4 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons ginger
2 teaspoons nutmeg
1 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon cloves

Note:  all spices are in ground form.  Combine all ingredients and mix well.  Place in tightly covered container.  Makes 3 T.
