    Mace and nutmeg come from the same plant and have very similar flavors--mace being more delicate, nutmeg a little sweeter. Leaving the mace out would not make a great deal of difference, but I would increase the nutmeg slightly if you like that flavor to make up for the missing mace. - 11/10/09

    If you use whole nutmegs, then use the outer coating as mace, then the inner gratings as nutmeg. Great recipe, BTW, and one that I will use for any recipe calling for this sort of spice mix. My only change is to increase the ginger 100%! - 10/16/10

    I believe I have all those individual spices in my cupboard... sounds like I may be mixing up a batch for the holidays to use in pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin cheesecake, and of course the standard pumpkin pie....Thanks! - 11/16/09

    I am of the old school, before we had the choice of pumpkin pie spice available in our area, so I have always used a mixture of spices. But, I could not remember the amts. of each, so thank you very much for sending this one out to us. - 11/16/09

    I already make all my own spice mixes (including pumpkin pie spice mix), so I tried this recipe instead of my usual. Although both recipes included the same spices, the amount of each individual spice differed. I enjoy trying new recipes--always looking for ways to modify/improve my current ones. - 11/16/09

    This is a good idea and I'm sure works well for some (as proven by the other ratings), but for some (including me-23 and live at home) not practical. Of the above, we only have cinnamon and (very old) nutmeg, lol, so for me it would be cheaper to buy a single item (the pumpkin pie spice). - 11/16/09

    I remember from my grandmother (British/Dutch/Pennsylvania Dutch side of the family) that you can start out with equal amounts of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and clove; then adjust the seasonings as you like. (I tend to LOVE nutmeg; Grandma didn't care much for cinnamon.) Allspice is a good addition. - 10/16/10

    Sounds like it would save time when making a pie --not to have to measure each one. It does not say how much of the mixed spices should be used in a nine inch pumpkin pie. Thank you. - 10/16/10

    Chef Meg - I can't find a way to email you so I'll ask here: I love the spice blends cookbook & would love more! Do you have a Chili blend?
