Pumpkin (Pie) Spice
As fall approaches the leaves start to change colours. The days are getting shorter and the nights colder. In the morning we need to wear jackets and in the afternoon we can go outside in T-Shirts to enjoy the warm sun rays. The air feels and smells different somehow. It feels like an in between season, one day you go to the pool…the next day you watch the stormy weather and seek more coziness.
Since we had a few of those cooler rainy days lately here in northern Germany, I thought it was time to prepare some pumpkin (pie) spice.I have to admit, I never tried pumpkin pie while we lived in Georgia, USA… but those pumpkin spice lattes you could get everywhere, they were delicious! And that’s what I did today, I made pumpkin spice and had a nice pumpkin spice latte and it brought the fall feeling right into our house.
For my spice mix I use:4 parts ground cinnamon
1 part ground nutmeg
1 part ground ginger
1 part ground cloves
1 part ground piment/AllspiceI measured the parts in tablespoons.
Happy fall y’all!
