Pumpkin Spice

Flavors, Hard packed Pints, Ingredients | posted on October 19, 2015

Every Thanksgiving we put Pumpkin Spice in the soft serve machines – it just seems like one of those flavors that everyone wants.  I have never been an avid pumpkin person during the fall, as I am equally satisfied with apples, pears, quince, and bourbon.  But Pumpkin Spice Everything is a fun game to play this time of year, and I didn’t want to sit on the sidelines watching anymore.  For the spice part we use Quatre Epices – a combination of four spices usually used for pates and other charcuterie.  The two previous years we used black pepper, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves.  I wanted to try another variation on the blend that I had heard of, so this year we switched it up.  We use black pepper as the base note, and add cinnamon, allspice, and mace.  A fun fact is that mace is actually what is wrapped around nutmeg (in what is called “blades”- two spices from the same plant.  I am loving this combination so far.  It is spicy, peppery, subtle, and exotic all in one.  You can purchase some Pumpkin Spice in the store or online.
