Peter's Delicious Pumpkin
When most people think of pumpkin as food (rather than as a jack-o-lantern), they
think of pumpkin pie. The pumpkin is a fruit, a member of the melon family. Here's
a delicious way to serve it with dinner, and easy, too, because it uses canned pumpkin.
Equipment: saucepan or mircowaveable bowl, wooden spoon, measuring spoons
1 #2 can of cooked pumpkin
2 Tablespoons margarine or butter
1 Tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice
or instead of pumpkin spice add
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 or 2 teaspoons brown sugar (or brown sugar substitute depending on how sweet you want it)
Top of stove: use saucepan. Microwave: use microwavable bowl.
Add all ingredients, stir, and heat until warm.
