There is no Pumpkin Pie Spice in my kitchen. Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves are included in my pumpkin pies, all made from my mother's recipe. Yes, I measure out each from their own little spice bottle.
Many people use Poultry Seasoning for their turkey dinner. Rubbed Sage , salt, and pepper are rubbed onto my turkey or other poultry at aThanksgiving meal. Mama did it this way, and it suits me, too. I have no need for all the ingredients in McCormick Poultry Seasoning.
I must check the dates on these spices to see if I need to replace them this year. I would suggest You check your spices early in order not to be running store to store at the last moment to find what you need. In the past, I have been caught short.
Someone expressed surprise that I would use my mother's exact recipes instead of making them my own. Well, all the time I read recipes that belonged to someone's grandmother or mother.
Plus, my children loved pumpkin pie and turkey and dressing. Mama did say I used too much sage, so I cut back on it the next time. She did not volunteer her opinion as I asked her the first time she ever ate my stuffing and gravy with sage. The sage was not as subtle as it should be!
Do you follow and cherish your family's recipes? Do you use Poultry Seasoning and Pumpkin Pie Spice or pumpkin spice or do you use the separate seasonings for pumpkin and poultry?
