I live in Budapest and cannot get real pumpkin or the puree you show. I do have several cans of pumpkin that US guests have brought over. Can this be substituted?
Hello Dr. Ryan James,
I'm quite sure if it some kind of canned, unsweetened pumpkin, then you could use it. If it is pre-sweetened then, you may want to leave out the other sweetener.
I cannot seem to print your recipes, tried several ways, several times; any inside info I need to know?
Joan, I checked in a couple different browsers and both print recipe cards were working. Perhaps it was a glitch. If it is still not printing, let me know what browser you use so I can trouble shoot.
