Technically a blend of spices, Americans treat it as a unique, single spice. This is a combination of cinnamon, ginger, cloves, allspice, and nutmeg. The result is a pungent, rustic combination that hits all the sweet spots in the nose and on the tongue.
The issue with pumpkin pie spice is you buy it once a year for the holidays. Come January, it then sits for 10 months and goes stale. Our recommendation? Any recipe that asks for ginger or cinnamon, try using pumpkin pie spice instead. You’ll find it works for a wide variety of applications like roasts and pilafs.
