Homemade Pumpkin Spice Mix

Not only do we grind our own cumin, but we now make our own pumpkin spice mix.

My Mom would be proud.


  • 2 teaspoons dried ginger flakes
  • 3 sticks cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly-grated nutmeg
  • 3 whole cloves


  1. Combine all ingredients in a coffee grinder and pulverize until mix blends into a uniform powder.
  2. Tap powder through a sieve if needed to remove any large pieces.
  3. Enjoy your freshly-made pumpkin spice mix!

Add a pinch to your coffee or include it in your favorite pumpkin muffin recipe.  Put a few tablespoons in labeled glass jars and adorn with twine for a set of simple and sweet party favors – Possibilities abound for this warm autumn spice blend!



  1. That measuring cup is super cute! I bet this would be nice added to cup of coffee – I hear that that’s a really popular add-in right now. Or maybe on ice cream! (I am that weird person who enjoys ice cream more in the fall and winter.)

    • Thanks! My sister got the measuring cups for me a few years ago :) I LOVE pumpkin spice in coffee – I like the sprinkling it on ice cream idea! Must give that one a try …

  4. I wonder why this is called Pumpkin Pie Spice in the States? In the rest of the world (well England and Australia at least) it’s called Mixed Spice. Maybe it’s to do with the US’s infatuation with pumpkins. Regardless, it’s lovely. As is your post, photography, and teaspoon. :)
