What is the history of pumpkin spice?

Pumpkin spice dates back hundreds of years. It is believed to be originated from the Dutch East India Trading business, but archeologists have found remnants of similar spice blends dating back from Greece and Egyptian times. Pumpkin spice is an accumulation of spices from various regions of the world.

The McCormick company credits itself for being the first to market it as a pumpkin pie spice. But the blend of cinnamon-ginger-clove-nutmeg-allspice is not exclusive to only pumpkin. This blend was used annually throughout Europe and during early American history, but nowadays we tend to associate it with Thanksgiving and Christmas.

If you want to try this spice blend as a savory, try our vegan butternut bisque made with coconut curry.

What is Allspice?

Allspice is a spice of Jamaican origin, from the unripened berry of the Myrtle Tree. It is sun-dried and then ground into a fine powder.

What gives it the name Allspice is that it gives off the flavor of cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg on its own. So if there is one spice to have in the pantry when in a pinch, Allspice is for the win.


What are the health benefits of pumpkin spice?

Pumpkin spice packs a powerful punch. Cinnamon is touted as a great anti-inflammatory, and ginger is good at boosting the immune system and soothing ingestion. Allspice has many proven benefits ranging from weight and insulin management to anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal, even anti-cancerous properties. Nutmeg helps improve blood circulation, cognitive function and is high in antioxidants.
