Homemade Apple Pie Spice

Homemade Apple Pie Spice Mix Recipe

About twice a year I usually take a trip to Sauder’s in Seneca Falls to stock up on baking supplies.  I buy large containers of cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg, pounds of sprinkles, and ridiculous amounts of oatmeal and rice . It has been a long time since I have bought a lot of spice and seasoning mixes because I usually just make my own. This is a recipe for Homemade Apple Pie Spice mix that I have used for years, and just love. It is actually very  quick and easily make your own Homemade Apple Pie Spice. You probably have almost all the ingredients you need right in your pantry! Really, the only ingredient in the Apple Pie Spice Mix I don’t buy in bulk is the cardamom, I just don’t use it as often as I do all the other ingredients, but I think it’s complex flavor adds a dimension to this spice mix that makes it outstanding. I know cardamom is not for everyone, and this Apple Pie Spice Mix is excellent even if you do choose to omit the cardamom.

Despite its name Apple Pie Spice Mix is not just for pies, it is great in crisps, oatmeal, muffins, and cakes. One of my favorite uses for Apple Pie Spice Mix is Chunky Apple Spice Cake.

Is there a website to where you buy your bulk spices from?

Hi Pearl, I buy the majority of my bulk spices from Amish or Mennonite Markets locally, but when I am searching out something that is a little harder to find I almost always use the Spice House, the prices are good, and they always have excellent quality spices.

For the apple pie spice mix, please indicate whether the nutmeg is powdered or fresh-ground. I used the latter and it seemed OK (that is, not too nutmeg-y).

Hi David, I use powdered nutmeg, if you are looking for more of an nutmeg flavor fresh-ground would be fine, although I would probably scale it back to about 1 1/2 teaspoons, as it is WAY more potent than the pre-ground stuff you buy in the spice aisle at the grocery store.
