Ya know, I’ve got to say….i’ve got an issue with the guy (or granny) who decided this wondersome spice blend was just for pumpkin pie y’all! If I had a pumpkin spice wand I would be very giving with this whimsical blend of autumn spice….this stuff is stellar on everything it touches! Not just for pumpkin, its swoonworthy on Pumpkin everything! Sweet potato everything! Apple everything but also chia….lattes…eggnog….tea…spice cakes and cookies…oatmeal and the list goes on! Do yourself a favor! Stop buying subpar and make custom spice blends at home! It’s life-changing and gives your food life as well….great thing about it too is that you can adjust the ratios of each ingredient to your liking….so if you can’t stand ginger just don’t bother with it but ginger is a medicinal wonder spice so if I were you i would ginger it up! Your gonna love my blend because it has the addition of sweet, spice and vanilla! You heard right….now spice up your life this autumn and have fun making this spice and everything nice that comes with it!
