How to make pumpkin pie spice

Tips for making homemade spices:
- Always use fresh spices. Fresh spices yield the best flavor. Most ground spices last for 6 months to 2 years. We recommend using spices purchased within the past year.
- Store the spices in a clean, airtight container away from heat and light. We store all of our spices in a small glass spice jar in a drawer in our kitchen.
