Tips For Storing Homemade Spices

Since this recipe is so easy, one of the biggest things that you need to pay attention to is the storage.

Spices will lose their freshness quickly if they’re not stored in an airtight container. My favorite way to store this spice is to use a small mason jar with a lid. That way it’s got a big enough mouth to easily get out the amount that I need and I don’t have to worry about using any other type of plastic to store it.

You don’t need to keep this in the fridge either! Just put it on the shelf in your pantry until you’re ready to use it. If you have a spice cabinet, that’s perfect!

About Thena Franssen


  1. Going to make this tomorrow! We eat pumpkin baked goods all year round (pies, bread, muffins, cakes, cheesecakes), not just for Thanksgiving. Bought several bottles of mix a while back from a discount store where the price was great but when I got home and started reviewing the ingredients, the very first one was sugar, yikes, so I had to always add a little more unadulterated pure spices to bring the flavor up. My last spice mix, I bought at a grocery store, the price knocked my socks off. Insanely high. The other great reason for homemade besides the price, is I can alter the seasonings, up or down, based on my family’s likes and dislikes. Don’t know why I never did that before anyways! Thanks so much for the post!
