When it comes to spices, it is best to keep them in an airtight jar to ensure that they remain fresh the longest. If your container is not tightly sealed, the spice blend will go stale and the aroma and flavor will get lost. So, that is why it is so important to find a glass jar with a tight lid. Place your pumpkin spice mix in a dark cupboard in the kitchen, and use it whenever you need! Label the jar so you know when you made the blend, keeping track of the freshness.

An airtight seal will ensure that your blend remains aromatic and flavorful for longer
