My Mom came a few days ago for Christmas. Today she was finishing cleaning out my pumpkins. Yes, I know it is Christmas and a month passed Thanksgiving. I have been using my pumpkin for smoothies, but today I made Pumpkin Energy Balls, roasted pumpkin seeds, and Mom made a pumpkin pie….Joshua has been request one every time she comes. She has made sugar cookies and I made cranberries and my hot cranberry drink at the request of family members.
I then decided to try a new recipe, Spiced Apple Pumpkin Butter I found on Dr Amy Myer’s website. I have tried a few of her recipes and all have been yummy. Check it out on her site if you want the recipe. However since I have a Vitamix I just put all of the ingredients into the blender, no cooking at all. I did add 5 drops of stevia since the apples are a sour variety. It turned out yummy. I love the taste, and it is a great way to use apples I got from my sister’s tree and my pumpkin. It is supposed to be used as a dip for crackers, fruit or vegetables. I tried it with celery. Definitely a winner. If you eat bread, it would make a delicious butter for bread as well.
So have you tried any new recipes this holiday season?
