Pumpkin Pie Spice
October 6, 2014—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
Trader Joe's Pumpkin Pie Spice is a sweet, warm blend of cinnamon, ginger, citrus, nutmeg, cloves and just a hint of cardamom. It is, quite unsurprisingly, ideal for pumpkin pie. Contrary to its somewhat restrictive nomenclature might imply, it's also excellent sprinkled over things like sweet potatoes, Kabocha Squash, and applesauce. Try it on hot cereal or sprinkled over a bowl of Joe's Pumpkin O's, use it to add a little extra character to banana bread or oatmeal cookies. Most grocers sell Pumpkin Pie Spice in smallish jars, figuring you don't need much. We sell it in a full-size, 1.8 ounce jar, because ours is so good we think you'll want to use it often - not just for pie. Ours is larger than most, yet it's also less expensive. We're selling each jar for $1.99, every day—during Pumpkin Season, that is. You'll find it with our other jarred spices.
