The scent of spices floating in the air makes me think of autumn, thanksgiving and pumpkin pie!
In this episode, you will learn how to make a delicious Pumpkin Pie essence. This essence is more of a puree that has been condensed. The puree can then be an ingredient in pumpkin pies, cakes, breads, cheesecakes, cookies and even frostings.
It could also be made into lotions, scrubs and a few other skin care products.
It is so easy to do and makes your house smell like the holidays!
Pumpkin Pie Essence
Ingredients in Order of Usage:
1 – 15 oz can of unsweetened pumpkin puree
1 ½ tsps. Ground cinnamon
¼ tsp ground nutmeg
⅛ tsp ground cloves
1 tsp of finely ground sea salt
Directions on Pumpkin Pie Essence
Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan over medium heat. Stir constantly as you cook the mixture. You will want to reduce this mixture to about 1 ½ cups. This mixture can burn, so again I say, stir constantly.
This will get you a very concentrate pumpkin pie flavoring. It should be much darker than the original pumpkin puree.
