Love it or hate it, we are right around the corner from pumpkin spice season !!! How do we know? It’s when we begin to see people walking down the street holding that cup of Starbucks Pumpkin spice Latte for starters.
Do you know the difference between Apple Pie spice and Pumpkin spice? They are pretty much identical with the exception of cloves. Cloves add that uniqueness that pumpkin spice is known for.
The sheer combination of cinnamon, All spice, nutmeg, cloves, a little ginger, maybe some cardamom is one of the most magical combinations ever created.
- Cinnamon has an earthy and sweet flavor.
- Nutmeg is most well known for its distinct flavor in egg nog or gingerbread cookies.
- All spice is simply a combination of nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon.
- Cardamom has a complex flavor. It’s citrusy, minty, spicy, and herbal all at the same time which pairs perfectly with warmer spices like mentioned above.
What can I Put Pumpkin Pie Spice in?
- Whipped cream
- Sprinkle it into or on top of morning oatmeal
- Any baked good like muffins, bread, cookies, scones or pie
- Pancakes or Waffles
- Baked Apples
- Roasted Nuts
- Your boring morning creamer
