Pumpkin Spice Extract


Pumpkin Spice everything is just around the corner, it starts the beginning of September and end the beginning of December when Gingerbread everything comes out.  I've become a sucker for buying almost everything that has the words Pumpkin Spice on it.  Some of the Pumpkin Spice items are really good and some are just not.

Whenever I would bake with ground up Pumpkin Spice it would mix pretty well most of the time but only could get the small container for it and it would have to buy it multiple times. So I thought I make an extract.  I've been making extracts for years, I just recently made Lemon/Orange Extract and Almond Vanilla Extract and Vanilla Extract never thought about making my own Pumpkin Spice extract.
I going to be using this extract for all of my recipes this Autumn season for my Pumpkin Spice fix. I normally make homemade PSL, Pumpkin Spice Syrup that I put in my coffee, cookies, cheesecake, cupcakes, cakes and I even made Pumpkin Spice peanuts.  Keep an eye out for those recipes.

These are the items that you'll need:
Mason Jar with a lid: I recommend getting plastic because the metal lids rust over time.
Labels: I get blanket name tags to write down the date so I can keep track when I made it.
This is for the regular size mason jars if you are using a smaller jar adjust the amount of alcohol and spices.
Ingredients
about 3 1/2 cups of Silver Rum or any clear liquor
10 Cinnamon Sticks
1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon of Whole All Spice
1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon of Whole Cloves
4 Whole Nutmeg
3 to 4 Tablespoons of Fresh Peeled Sliced Ginger

Combine Whole Cloves, Whole All Spice, Whole Nutmeg, Cinnamon Sticks and Fresh Ginger to your glass jar. Pour in rum to the last line of the Mason Jar, that will equal to about 3 1/2 cups. Place lid on top and shake it gently. 
Label the date you made it. Place in a cool dark place for at least 8 weeks before using.  Gently shake it at least  every two weeks.

You will have to pour through a mess strainer or cheesecloth before using.

    1. Might be able to add a tablespoon more of the all spice instead of the nutmeg or use just one nutmeg instead of the four.
