    A delicious way to cook fresh pumpkin. Pumpkin is cooked with butter, sugar, maple syrup, fresh ginger and ground cinnamon. It's sweet, slightly spicy and very delicious.

    Since I had 6 cups of white pumpkin, I used it, while keeping all the other ingredients the same. The recipe was easy to follow. The two hours of mellowing time helped the flavors blend. I'm don't like that the butter has resolidified in tiny little particles, but otherwise this is a great recipe!  -  30 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Followed recipe except I substituted a tsp of pumpkin pie spice in place of the other spices. Came out great texture, great flavour, although I wish it had more pow.  -  29 Sep 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    It is easy and works well over fruit, pound cake or ice cream. I added a little salt to offset all the sweet of the sugar. I didn't have maple syrup so I used brown sugar which is made with maple syrup anyway. I'll surely make this again.  -  29 Oct 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
