Pumpkin Spread
« on: May 09, 2012, 01:14:26 pm »
This recipe is from the Malaysian cookbook Easy Cooking, Healthy Eating. I don't normally post recipes I have not tried but there was an interest shown for pumpkin jam and I wondered if this one would fit the bill.

400g pumpkin, cubed
30g sugar
200g water
100g toasted cashews

Place the pumpkin, sugar and water into the TM bowl and cook for 15 mins/100o/speed 2.
Add the toasted cashews and blitz 1 min/speed 10.

Sounds interesting Judy, I wonder if I made this if anyone would eat it? The kids don't like pumpkin but like pumpkin soup (strange I know). I have heaps of pumpkin to use up so I could give it a go.

Do it for the sake of the forum Mandi  ;D  We need recipe testers to get the ball rolling on some recipes.

This recipe sounds delicious I love pumpkin- how is it eaten? On sandwiches? As a dip?

I guess that depends on how thick it is CGL.  I must make a batch and see what it looks and tastes like then see if I can come up with some ideas for it.

I think I will try this on Wednesday. Busy day tomorrow
 Have to use up some pumpkins that we found when DH whipper snipped an area that was over-run with weeds.    :-))
Have given a heap away and made loads of pumpkin soup.  Used TC and the new 5 in 1 for the soup.  Both were yummy.
Tonight we had curry with big chunks of pumpkin and some tapioca roots that I got from the market.  ??? There was a lovely indian guy there who told me how to cook the tapioca. :)  I have never seen it before.   Mmmm.  Was delish   ;D

I have some of this cooling in jars right now. It is really delicious! Mine has turned out quite runny, not sure if that should have occurred? I'm going to call it Pumpkin Sauce  ;D

I think the 'sauce' will be gorgeous on brushetta, or perhaps as a base on a vegi pizza. It would be yummy over roasted spuds or used as a pasta sauce. Or just eat it with a spoon!

Did it thicken up when refrigerated Reeni?  Maybe use less water next time for a thicker result.

Also if you leave the MC off it might help with evaporation.  :)

No, it hasn't thickened. MC off next time for sure. It is very yummy though!
