About This Recipe

“Warp-Speed because you make it in the microwave – no all-day cooking for this spicy-sweet spread! My kids like to put it on their toast, and pretend they’re having pumpkin pie for breakfast! It does taste like pumpkin pie filling, and makes a wonderful hostess gift. Make sure your recipient puts this right into the refrigerator! NOTE: Don’t try to “home can” this. It’s hard to get the dense-textured pumpkin hot enough in the center to assure it has processed properly, and from what I’ve seen, the USDA recommends against it. Just make a small batch up when you want to give someone a treat! Microwave times are approximate, as ovens vary.”


    • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
    • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
    • 1/4 cup water
    • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
    • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
    • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
    • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
    • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1 1/2 cups canned pumpkin ( NOT pumpkin pie filling mix)
