How To Store Pumpkin Spice
Store your pumpkin pie spice in a glass jar in a cold and dry place on the counter for up to one week.
Pumpkin Pie Spice Vs Allspice
Pumpkin pie spice and allspice are totally different things and can not be substituted with each other since ground allspice is an ingredient used to create a pumpkin pie spice recipe.
Pumpkin Pie Spice vs Apple Pie Spice
While apple pie spice and pumpkin spice have a similar spice profile, there is a slight difference. Apple pie spice is made using cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, and sometimes cardamom. Pumpkin spice doesn’t include cardamom, and apple spice has no cloves.
Can I Substitute Pumpkin Pie Spice?
Sure, if you don’t have any pumpkin pie spice at home, you can replace it with a mix of cinnamon, ginger, allspice, cloves, or nutmeg.
Is Pumpkin Pie Spice Keto-Friendly?
If we are talking about those spice mixes from stores that contain added sugar, they are not good for keto because they have a high amount of carbs.
But fortunately, you can make your mix of spices at home using only naturally low-carb ingredients.
