It's Time for Pumpkin Spice 1

While standing in line at Starbuck’s this week, I noticed they are already serving Pumpkin Spice Latte’s. The high was in the 90s that day, but I had to admit, it IS September, and that means it is time for Pumpkin Spice everything. At EvilO, we also have pumpkin….it’s our Pumpkin Pie Spice White Balsamic Vinegar. This sweet, ag ed vinegar features the flavors of pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg. It tastes great in sweet potato dishes, drizzled over pork tenderloin or roast turkey, or drizzled over vanilla or coffee ice cream. You can also add a few drops to your hot tea or coffee. Here are a few recipes to get you in the mood for Pumpkin Spice season!
