Yes, you can make your own pumpkin pie spice. The beauty of making your own blend at home as a substitute for store-bought pumpkin pie spice is that not only is it cheaper because you can use spices you already have in your pantry but you can tweak the proportions of each spice as you wish. [Editor’s Note: Although we gotta say, we quite like the ratios in the recipe below.] Not only will you never ever have to run to the store just for a jar of spice but you also have a lovely little homemade hostess gift, too.–Renee Schettler

HOW DO I STORE PUMPKIN SPICE?

If you’re into reusing and recycling old spice jars, go ahead and stash this pumpkin pie spice in an empty spice jar that you kept thinking you’d use someday for something. The author notes that it’s best not to use a container that originally was used for garlic, curry, onion powder, or a similarly pungent and savory spice, for what we think are quite obvious reasons.

We’d also like to suggest that if you’re only using this as a seasonal embellishment, you might want to make a fresh batch each autumn from fresh spices. You’ll be thankful you did.

  • Dump all the spices in a small bowl and stir to combine.

  • Pour the pumpkin pie spice mix to a small glass canning jar, a repurposed spice jar with a lid, or any other small, resealable container. (If pouring the spice mix into a small container, first place it on a creased sheet of parchment paper and then carefully slide it in, or use a funnel.) The spice mixture will keep airtight at room temperature for many months.
