All you need are cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice and ground cloves.  See the recipe card below for amounts.  You can also double up the recipe to make plenty for later!

You just mix the spices up in a bowl and put in any airtight container you’d like.  I recommend using an old spice jar that you’ve cleaned out!

Hope you enjoy making all the fall pumpkin recipes with your new homemade spice!
