I was around 13 years old having dinner with my sister-in-law and my 2 nephews. The boys were refusing to eat their pumpkin. I was on their side as I too wasn't a fan of the orange veg back then.
My sister-in-law, in all her loving wisdom, decided to tell the boys how much Auntie Leigh LOVED her pumpkin and watch how she can eat all of it.
I think know I gave her the death stare.
It didn't work.
In fact, eating pumpkin that day made me realise how much I actually liked it (I never admitted that to her though).
This simple little recipe is part of the I Quit Sugar experiment I'm currently on. Make it in huge batches and freeze - perfect to spread on your sandwich as a little sweet touch.
Oh how far I have come.
