Think Outside The Box With Our Tasty New Ideas For This Season’s Favorite, Pumpkin Spice

 

One of our most favorite things about this time of year is the unlimited supply of Pumpkin Spice Latte’s, but as this delicious much-loved drink is unfortunately only seasonal we started looking for new ideas of how we can all make the most of the tasty Pumpkin Spice this fall.

Pereg Natural Foods, leading consumers of spices and spice blends from all over the world, gave us some exclusive ideas and recipes proving how Pumpkin Spice isn’t only made for dressing up our coffee’s and we can use it to impress our friends and families all season.

Pereg told us how their intriguing blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, and cloves can be used in numerous different ways, including to add hint of jazz to your Martini drink!

They recommend starting with this easy marinade for many meat dishes:

This robust combination works especially well with skirt steak, short ribs, London broil, chicken, and even turkey. Keep clean-up simple with a zip-close bag – no dishes to wash!

 

½ cup good quality olive oil

2-3 garlic cloves, crushed

2 Tbsp. Pereg Natural Foods Pumpkin Pie Spice blend

1 Tbsp. brown sugar or ½ Tbsp. honey

1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard

½ Tbsp. lime juice

Salt to taste

Red chili pepper flakes to taste

 

Put all the ingredients in a zip-close food storage bag. Seal the bag and massage the ingredients to blend. Add the meat or poultry to the bag, squeeze out excess air, seal, and store in the fridge for at least 1 hour. Drain the liquid and broil, grill, or bake as usual. Do not re-use the marinade.
