Pumpkin Marmalade

 

I found this great idea for marmalade that I don’t think would have ever crossed my mind otherwise on the Better Homes and Garden website.  Here’s the recipe:

 

ingredients

  • 2
    cups cooked fresh pumpkin puree or one 15-oz. can pumpkin
  • 1
    cup orange marmalade
  • 1
    teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 2
    tablespoons lemon juice
  • English cheddar cheese, white cheddar cheese, or Parmesan cheese (buy about 2 oz. for each person you’ll be serving)
  • Assorted hearty breads
     
    directions

    1.In a medium saucepan combine cooked fresh pumpkin puree, marmalade, and ginger. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in lemon juice. Transfer to a serving bowl. Cover and cool. Serve as a spread with cheese and bread. Makes about 3 cups or 24 (2-tablespoon) servings.

2.   In small bowl, mix the cookie crumbs and melted margarine.  Press the crumb mixture on the bottom and 1 inch up side of pan.

3.   Bake crust for about 8 minutes or until it sets. Then, let it cool at room temperature for about 5 minutes.  Refrigerate about 5 minutes or until completely cooled.

5.   In large bowl, beat cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth and creamy.  Gradually beat in brown sugar and granulated sugar until smooth.  On low speed, beat in eggs, one at a time, just until blended.  Gradually beat in pumpkin mixture until smooth.  Pour filling over crust.

6.   Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour 25 minutes or until the edge of cheesecake is set but centre still jiggles slightly when moved.  Run knife around edge of pan to loosen cheesecake.

7.   Turn the oven off and open the oven door at least 4 inches.  Let the cheesecake remain in oven for 30 minutes.

8.   Cool in pan on cooling rack 30 minutes.  Refrigerate at least 6 hours or overnight before serving.
