Pumpkins seem to be everywhere this time of year. In your soups, in your lattes and now even in your ice-cream. It is almost as if for a few magical months, people take notice of the delectable gourd for all of it’s true potential.
The funny thing about most pumpkin spiced desserts is that they don’t always come with the pumpkin! Pumpkin spice is a blend of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, ground clove and sometimes allspice. Although they gained popularity in pumpkin pie, the spice blend itself has outgrown the dessert to become a force all on it’s own. You can find almost everything pumpkin spice from candy to candles.
The reason this blend is so popular is because it is incredibly aromatic and hearty. Well spiced food is always delicious, even in desserts. Sophisticated desserts should be more than just sweet. Balancing sweet and spicy in a dessert is a difficult thing to do, however it can have incredible results. The key is to ensure there is a good level of sweet AND savory. Therefore, when the spices are added it creates another dimension of flavor to the dish taking it to a whole other level. Furthermore the aromatics of the spices tend to have a relaxing, comforting effect.
