Recipe Tips

- For cranberry lovers, substitute 1 cup fresh cranberries, cut in half, for the sweetened dried cranberries.

- Leftover canned pumpkin can be used to flavor ice cream. To each cup of vanilla ice cream, add 1/3 cup canned pumpkin, 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, a pinch of ginger and a pinch of cloves; stir to combine. Place in freezer container with tight fitting lid; store in freezer.
