The Fall brings with it a wonderful variety of colours, of shades, of flavour and...tastes! We here at the Bowl are really in love with the Fall, it's the perfect season for poets, for artists, for sensitive soul and...geat yummy food! Today we want to talk to you about a special ingredient, a great companion for one of the Fall's gastronomical stars: the Pumpkin Pie Spice!
This mix of spices was invented in America in order to have a stronger pumpkin experience. The spices that form this mix are quite strong, if you take them one by one, but alltogether they're great and so harmonious. You can make it at home using cloves, the Jamaica "Allspice" pepper, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. The Pumpkin Pie spice is used also in a very well known coffeehouse chain, for its typical Pumpkin Pie Spice Latte, a very original "latte". Many was upset when they found out that their pumpkin latte actually had no pumpkin taste in it! og course, you can use at home you Pumpkin Pie Spice to sip a great cappuccino!
It is worth saying that the Jamaica "Allspice" it isn't actually a "true" pepper, is rather a dried "berry", and its taste may reminds you a mix of spices like the nutmeg, the cinnamon and the ginger. The Pumpkin Pie Spice is used in many pumkin-based pies and drinks. A very versatile ingredients, indeed! Let's see how to prepare it!
1 tbsp of cloves powder
1 tbsp of Jamaica "Allspice" pepper in powder
3 tbsp of cinnamon in powder
2 tbsp of ginger
2 tbsp of nutmeg
Ready? Mix all the spices together until you obtain a pretty homogeneous mix. When you mix it, you'll smell the magic taste of these spices becoming one! You can put your Pumpkin Pie Spice in a little jar and keep it ready to use. We advice you: this spice may cause serious addiction! Use this mix for your Fall pumpkin pies, or also for your frappè or your smoothies! There's no best way to enjoy the fall and the foliage than tasting fall's very own tastes! It's a great colourful season, you gotta love it!
