How to make your own Pumpkin Spice that is anything but “basic:”


Make a 1:1 simple syrup (2 cups sugar + 2 cups water) -raw sugar works best for deep flavor, white sugar if you like sweetness more.

-Infuse with pumpkin spices into the syrup( best to do while hot)

15 cloves

1 TBSP nutmeg

1 TBSP cinnamon

1 TSP ginger

1 TSP allspice

- Remove cloves after syrup cools (this will help keeping the bitterness down)

-When syrup is cooled down, blend 1:1 with pumpkin puree ( I used a kitchen aid mixer, you can do it with a whisk or a vitamix blender)

-store in refrigerator for 1-2 weeks.

-Try it in coffee with cream, smoothies, shakes, teas and cocktails


Sometimes all you need is a little sip of pumpkin spice and a trip to the pumpkin patch to make it the perfect day!
