Why make your own spice blends:
I have probably bought pumpkin pie spice in the past but I don’t anymore for several reasons.
- Number one, I don’t like to spend money on another jar that contains spices I already have in my pantry.
- Number two, (my kids would probably tell you this should be number 1) I am also a kind of a control freak, I always wish to know what is in any blend and have my own opinion on what should be in or not in any blend.
- Number three, Making your own pumpkin pie spice is totally the way to go. It can be tweaked to your family’s taste buds, like more cinnamon, less nutmeg, etc.

I love homemade spices - I think they taste better when you mix them yourself!
