We love pumpkin! and love to use it in savory and sweet dishes. This is one of our favorite ways to utilize pumpkin! —adamnsvetcooking

What You'll Need
  • 1 cup Milk (you can use soy milk)
  • 4 tablespoons Honey
  • 1 Inch of pealed ginger, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Orange Zest
  • 3/4 cup Pumpkin pure (canned is good, we like Libby's)
  • 2 Egg yokes
  • 1/2 tablespoon Of corn starch dissolved in 2 tbs of room temp water
  1. Simmer the milk, sliced ginger, orange zest, cinnamon and honey over medium heat, for about 10 mins.
  2. Take off the heat and let all the ingredients steep in the milk for about 10 to 15 mins. You really want to infuse the milk with the different flavors.
  3. Strain the mixture.
  4. Add the pumpkin. At this point the temperature of the mixture will drop, and the egg yokes can be tempered. (I make scrambled eggs sometimes ;)
  5. Temper the egg yokes with few tablespoons of the mixture. Return the tampered eggs to the mixture. Add the dissolved corn starch to the mixture.
  6. Place the mixture on back on medium heat. Whisk until the pudding thickens.
  7. Pour into ramekins or decorative dishes, and place in the refrigerator to cool.
  8. Sprinkle a pinch or two of cinnamon and enjoy!!

Delicious! My mom always baked one pumpkin pie without the crust. This is a lovely fresh take on it.
