We are knee-deep in apple season here in southern Indiana, so you'll be seeing lots of apple recipes over the next several weeks on the blog. To start us off, I'm sharing my homemade apple pie spice blend. This stuff is so good, that I use it on more than just apple pie though. It's delicious in hot cereal, muffins, fried apples, apple crisp, baked apples, sweet potatoes, french toast... the possibilities are as endless as your cooking imagination.
This apple pie spice is the perfect amount of each spice for my family and really good, so I highly recommend making it as stated. But feel free to experiment and make it your own! That's the beauty of making things from scratch, you can tailor them to your tastes and preferences.
I bought the cute little jar I store the apple pie spice in, at the Dollar store. But if you want to make this recipe even more frugal, wash, dry and reuse an old spice jar to store it! You can also find similar jars online.
