  • 1 cup pumpkin puree, from a can
  • 1 cup granulated or light brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups cold water, more if needed
  • 3/4 - 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice, found at any grocery stores next to the cinnamon and apple pie spice
  • pinch sea or kosher salt


  1. To make this delicious pumpkin syrup, add pumpkin puree, sugar, water, pinch salt, pumpkin pie spice to a small saucepan. On medium to medium-high heat, bring to a boil while stirring constantly. Once the syrup has boiled and the syrup looks smooth (if the syrup is too thick, you can add a little more water to thin out) and combined completely, take the pan off the heat. Stir again and let cool in pan for about 15 to 20 minutes. Pour syrup into a strainer that’s sitting over a bowl and with a spoon or rubber spatula, push through until all the syrup is in the bowl. Pour into a mason jar or any jar with a lid. Place in fridge and can keep for up to a week.
