Fall Spices

When it is this time of year, these spices get used constantly in my house.  I make my own since I have lots of spices.  They make great hostess gifts to friends at the Holidays too. Easy and you can adjust to suit your taste.

Pumpkin Pie Spice

2 tablespoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
pinch of mace

Mix altogether and store in a glass jar.

Chai Mix

1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon cardamom
1½ nutmeg
1½ cloves
1½ ginger
pinch of black pepper (I like a little)

Combine all ingredients and store in a glass container.
