In pursuit of a simple, fabulous, imperfect life at home.

{SavourTheSeason} Day 1: Pumpkin Pie Spice (to keep and to share!)

Start with two clean,small, pretty jars.

To each jar add:
  • 8 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • and 1 tsp ground cloves
Shake to combine.

Add simple handwritten labels and a peice of ribbon or twine.

Keep one and surprise a friend or neighbour with the other. Enjoy liberally in muffins, pie, pancakes (Seriously yummy...try it!) and coffee.

This is day one in a 31 day series about celebrating autumn.  Together, for 31 days, we will bask in the simplest joys of a beautiful season marked by contentment, thankfulness, and fellowship.  Happy Autumn.
