Not “Pumpkin” Spice

What type of food represents fall? What is the most common fall-vibe seasoning added to your recipe? Pumpkin Spice! Pumpkin Spice best represents autumn in terms of its color, scent, and taste. We use pumpkin spice as ingredients in various foods: pumpkin spice latte, pumpkin spice bagels, pumpkin pie, etc. While most people believe that pumpkin spice comes from small particles of dried pumpkins, there is, in fact, no pumpkin in pumpkin spice. 

To talk about the history of pumpkin spice, it was first discovered on the ceramic pottery pieces in Indonesia. Fifty years ago, Mccormick invented the pumpkin spice and began selling it.  

  Pumpkin Spice is generally a mixture of cinnamon, ginger, clove, and nutmeg particles. Not pumpkin. Instead of buying artificial pumpkin spice, some people make pumpkin spice from scratch. By adding two teaspoons of ground cinnamon, one teaspoon of ground ginger, half teaspoon of ground nutmeg, half teaspoon of ground allspice, and one-fourth of ground cloves, people can simply make a well-baked homemade pumpkin spice!

      Spend a nice fall full of warmth-filling conversations with your friends! Form a gathering with your family members! We can’t just let a season of warmth and chill, run away without recognition or celebration!
