Light custard can be served cold or slightly warmed. I even had some left and dehydrated it at 105 Fahrenheit till very firm like a roll-up, and it was delicious. I am giving the directions exactly how I did it, so it may be improved upon since it’s my first try. Suggestions are extremely welcome as always!

Recipe Directions

1. Cut the pumpkin (about 1/2 a pie pumpkin) into small chunks and set to dehydrate for about 30 minutes at 105 Fahrenheit.

2. While this is happening, start soaking the cashews.

3. Place nut milk and water in sauce pan with the agar and heat on low heat (I actually measured the temperature but I doubt you have to be that anal) for 30 minutes, stirring often.

4. Following the 30 minutes, add about 1/4 cup water to the pumpkin and blend it until almost completely smooth. I used my magic bullet with the flat blade and it worked like a charm.

5. Blend the cashews until it’s a butter consistency. Add to the pumpkin mush and blend until completely combined in a blender.

6. Add agar, nut milk, and water mix to this and blend. (I actually went so far as to strain the swelled agar mixture from the liquid, blend it until pudding-like, slowly add the warmed liquid to it slowly until completely blended and pudding-like, add the pumpkin/cashew mixture and then blend again. But I’m anal.)

7. Add in the sweetener, coconut butter, allspice, cinnamon, salt, and orange extract, blending until really smooth.

8. Spoon into small dishes (I used ramekins) of 1/3 to 1/2 cup measurements. Refrigerate for about 2 hours or so, or try heating in dehydrator at 105 for 4 or 5 hours.

9. For the topping, place walnuts, cranberries, dates, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon salt in the blender and blend till roughly mixed.

10. Spoon about a tablespoon on top of custard.

Not really, you peel it like a squash, and discard the rind, then cube it small. :}

mmmm...sounds good, but I don't have any experience with fresh pumpkin. Is it difficult to manage?
