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)
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!
