Spotlight on Spice: How to make Pumpkin Pie Spice

recipe for pumpkin pie spice with clove, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice

Celebrating fall in the Philippines is like celebrating winter in Malaysia. It doesn’t make any sense, but it sure is fun.

When Peachy of The Peach Kitchen went out searching for pre-mixed pumpkin pie spice in her home in the Philippines, it was like searching for a Granny Smith apple tree or a bright red maple leaf.

Refusing to come home empty handed – and determined for her tropical kitchen to have the aroma of autumn – she bought the ingredients instead. Cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, cloves. And as easy as that, Peachy had her taste of fall.

For the exact recipe, head over now to The Peach Kitchen. And also in the coming weeks, as Peachy puts all that spice to work, to show that pumpkin pie spice isn’t just about pumpkin pie.

Do you think celebrating fall in a tropical country sounds silly?  If so, ask yourself this – do you think it’s silly to associate fall with a mix of tropical spices (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, cloves)?  This world is a lot more connected than most of us think.

Happy Fall everyone, wherever you are in this small world!
