The Origin of Pumpkin Spice
Pumpkin spice, the ultimate flavour of fall, has a rich history. It's believed to have originated in North America, where Native Americans used a mixture of ground spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice to season their food. Early American settlers embraced these spices and soon began incorporating them into various recipes, especially pumpkin-based dishes. Fast forward to today, and pumpkin spice has become an iconic autumnal flavour that can be found in lattes, pies, and, of course, cookies!
