pumpkin sauce

This is the not-so-well-known cousin of apple sauce — a side dish that can go with any
meal, delicious as a spread on bread too!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of fresh pumpkin puree (see below) or canned Pure Pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup apple sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup of honey

Preparation:

Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl. Serve

Storage: Refrigerate for 2-3 days. Freeze for up to 2 months.

Fresh Pumpkin Puree:

You will need 1 small to medium pumpkin.

Prep: Wash, cut in half, and remove seeds. Cut each half into four pieces.

Cook: Place in microwave-safe dish with 1 Tbsp of water. Cover. Cook 13-15 minutes.
Let stand 5 minutes. Pumpkin is done if you can pierce it easily with a fork.

water. Discard Skins. Process. Add 1/4 to 1/2 cup additional water to develop smooth
texture.
