From Our Kitchen to Yours: Pumpkin Pie with Maple Syrup

by Nancy Jenkins, CRB, CRS

The deliciousness of this pumpkin pie comes from the maple syrup, which adds an earthy caramel flavor. Happy Thanksgiving!


  • 10-inch pie crust
  • 1 cup Grade B Maple Syrup
  • 2 cups fresh or canned pumpkin (or squash)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground clove
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs


Prepare a 10-inch pie crust or purchase one. Preheat oven to 375° F.

In a saucepan gently boil maple syrup and let cool. (You may also substitute unheated Grade A fancy syrup.) In a bowl whisk together pumpkin, spices, salt, cream, milk, and eggs and whisk in maple syrup.

Pour filling into shell and brush edge of shell with some egg wash. Bake pie in middle of oven for 70 minutes, or until filling is set but center shakes slightly. (Filling will continue to set as pie cools.) Transfer pie to a rack to cool completely.

Optional: Serve with bourbon whipped cream

Change Your Clocks, Change Your Batteries

by Nancy Jenkins, CRB, CRS

Clocks in the United States officially roll back one hour on November 6, at 2am, when Daylight Savings Time ends, giving you an extra hour of sleep! (This is your chance for a little bonus hiberation time before the busy holiday season ahead. Thanksgiving is three weeks away!)

Sunday is also a good time to REPLACE BATTERIES in your home all your SMOKE ALARMS and CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTORS. 

Homeowners should check their smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors monthly -- and replace batteries annually -- to keep them running in optimum condition. Did you know that most injuries and deaths from residential fires happen at night while victims are asleep? This is why fully functioning detectors are so critical.


Put it on your home to-do list today!
