Spice Cabinet Essentials for Fall Baking

Nothing says fall like the sweet aroma of freshly baked treats wafting through the house. The key to creating delicious fall desserts is having the right spices, and that's where Saigon Cinnamon Powder comes in. This fragrant spice contains a high percentage of essential oil content, making it sweeter than other cinnamon varietals. Its sweet-hot flavor is reminiscent of stevia and is perfect for adding to all your favorite baked fall desserts.

At Old Town Spice Shop, we source the highest quality of cinnamon from various regions ensuring it has the highest oil content possible to provide the most flavor.

In addition to Saigon cinnamon, we recommend Apple Pie Spice and Pumpkin Pie Spice to elevate the fall flavor of your baked goods. Our Apple Pie Spice offers the perfect blend of cinnamon nutmeg, allspice, and cloves for a simple apple pie bursting with flavor. Our Pumpkin Pie Spice is perfect for baked breads, and cookies, and can be used to create a mouthwatering frosting to top cakes and cupcakes.

Looking for a little extra kick on a classic fall favorite cookie? Try making Spicy Snickerdoodles using our Cinnamon Sugar and Habanero Sugar! Trust us, this recipe is a keeper!

Scrumptious Seasoned Snacks You'll Devour

Fall is a wonderful time for snacking, especially on football Sundays, and we've got all the gourmet sugars and popcorn seasonings you need to satisfy your sweet and savory cravings. Our Spiced Chai Sugar is a delicious way to add all the flavors of chai tea to your favorite snacks. Use it to sprinkle on toast, mix it into plain Greek yogurt for a healthy yet sweetly satisfying snack, or use it as the main dry ingredient for make-at-home roasted candied almonds or cashews.

Our Pumpkin Spice Popcorn Seasoning is bursting with flavor, making it the perfect addition to your movie night popcorn. Or, try making delightfully sweet and salty popcorn balls that the kids (and adults) will love. Looking for a sweet dip for your apple slices or crackers? Try mixing Cinnamon Sugar and Pecan Flavoring into a block of ⅓ less fat cream cheese for a delectable cinnamon pecan dip that will have your tastebuds dancing.

Flavorful Spices and Seasonings for Fall Soups

As the temperatures start to drop, there's nothing quite like a steaming bowl of soup to warm you up from the inside out. Our Ground Devil’s Backbone spice blend is a delicious blend of toasted savory spices like coriander, cumin, fennel, chipotle, and habanero. This is one of our most popular blends that pairs superbly in just about any soup you can think of, but it’s particularly delicious in potato-, veggie-, or bean-based soups.

Achiote Seasoning is another great option for soups. Its peppery and sweet undertones make it ideal for adding depth to chicken tortilla soup, or Mexican rice and vegetables in an achiote broth. And if you’re looking for a gourmet spice blend to whip up a pot of classic fall chili, our Chili Blend Powder is an excellent choice to soothe the soul.

Comforting Gourmet Beverage Mixes

Finally, what's fall without a comforting cup of something hot and delicious to drink? Our Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Hot Cocoa is the perfect way to indulge in a little chocolatey goodness, topped with whipped cream and a sprinkle of Saigon cinnamon. Our Gourmet Mulling Spice is ideal for creating mulled cider or mulled wine while adding all the warming flavors of fall. For those who love bean juice, our Hopped Up Pumpkin Ale Coffee is a specialty gourmet blend made with freshly roasted coffee, malted barley, hops, and a hint of pumpkin spices. It's the perfect way to start your fall mornings or enjoy a cozy afternoon at home.

Don’t worry, we didn’t forget about the boozy fall libations! With that, our Pumpkin Spice Sugar is both delicious and versatile. Try rimming your mulled wine (or cider) glass with this spicy-sweet blend to elevate the flavor. If you plan to make a few different fall-inspired cocktails, use this gourmet sugar to make your own pumpkin spice simple syrup. Here’s a hint: Try this simple syrup in a pumpkin spice espresso martini. Trust us. You won’t regret it!
