Pumpkin Spice Syrup with Agave

As I avoid processed sugar as much as I can, I use agave for this recipe. You can no problem replace it with a normal sugar syrup, though I think it’s a win-win situation with agave.

Recipe Type: Side
Serves: 1 jar
Ingredients
  • 120 grams of pumpkin flesh
  • 300 grams of agave syrup
  • 3 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of all spice
  • ½ teaspoon of ground cloves
  • ½ teaspoon of ground ginger
Instructions
  1. Cut your pumpkin into even size pieces and steam. If you have a steamer, use that. I don’t, so I put the pumpkin in a metal sieve and steam it in a normal pot with the lid on and a little bit of water in the bottom. Make sure the pumpkin isn’t touching the water, as it will start loosing it flavour into the water.
  2. When the pumpkin is soft, blend it with a hand-blender or in a food-processor until completely smooth.
  3. In a clean, dry pot add the 300 grams of agave syrup and all the spices. Cook on very low heat for about 3 minutes. Add in the pureed pumpkin and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Don’t let it boil, it just needs to heat through and take on all the flavours.
  4. Sterilize a jar by scolding it with boiling water.
  5. Pour the syrup through a fine mesh sieve into the sterilized jar. This will get rid of any impurities or pieces of pumpkin. Seal immediately and leave in the fridge to cool.
  6. Add 1-2 tablespoons of syrup to your latte, or whatever amount you think it needs to satisfy your sugar craving!
