Easy Pumpkin Pie Spice Recipe
So, you know I love helping people save money!!
Making your own condiments helps cut costs because you can buy the base ingredients for less and combine them for real savings! This recipe is so easy that you'll never buy pumpkin pie spice at the store again!
My favorite thing to do when it comes to finding organic herbs and spices is to head to my local health food store and buy from their bulk foods section. They often have organic herbs and spices to choose from at a tiny fraction of the cost to buy at the grocery store.
For example: A 1.97 oz bottle of pre-made organic pumpkin spice mix costs $5 + shipping. By buying in bulk at my local health food store, I can grab all the ingredients for this pumpkin pie spice recipe for less than $1.25!
Still all organic and for much less than buying it pre-made!
NOTE: You can also check your grocery store for a bulk spices section, though it will likely not be organic (which may not be a requirement for you).
