*Pumpkin puree

Use any dessert pumpkin (Butternut works well).

Sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice (a mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, all spice, cloves and dried ginger.) and bake on 200 for an hour or until pumpkin is soft to the touch. 

Step 2: While baking, make a spiced syrup: 300ml water with 200g sugar and 2 heaped teaspoons pumpkin pie spice on the stove to, bring to boil while stirring and simmer for 10 minutes. 

Step 3: Add chunks of baked pumpkin (skin removed) to a blender or food processor and add the spiced syrup. Blend until smooth and strain through a fine strainer. Add a little water if the puree is too thick. Use immediately or store in fridge for up to 3 days.
