Pumpkin Spice Recipe with a Twist!

On the subject of squash and pumpkins, another rarity in Montreal is pumpkin spice. I haven't found one grocery or retailer that sells it but it's so easy to make yourself. Traditionally, pumpkin spice is a blend of 4 parts ground cinnamon, 2 parts ground ginger, 1 part ground nutmeg and 1 part ground allspice.

I like to jazz up mine with an extra 1 part ground cardamon and 1 part ground cloves. Combine spices together and store in an airtight jar. Use liberally in your baking. Enjoy!
