If you're anything like me, you've noticed the cornucopia of pumpkin-flavored foods and beverages this autumn. Yes, it's true, we're all suckers for our pumpkin flavored coffee, scones, pancakes, cookies, etc. and with this quick and simple recipe, you can add a little of your own fall flavor to whatever you like.

So far I've found this goes really well with:
-Coffee - perfect for making your own pumpkin spice lattes at home!
-Frosting for baked goods
-Morning toast/bagels
-Ice cream
-Roasted sweet potatoes and/or squash - a great mix of savory and sweet.

1 cup water
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon of canned pumpkin puree (puree folks, not pie mix)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground clove
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp ground ginger (or a 1/2 inch cube of fresh ginger)

Tools needed:
Can opener
measuring cups (1 cup and 3/4 cup)
measuring spoons (1/2 and 1/4 teaspoons, 1 tablespoon)
Small saucepan
Glass or plastic storage container (mason jar, tupperware, etc)

Step 1: Heat 1 cup of water on medium heat in a saucepan

Really, couldn't you make it easier to read the recipe? I don't need pictures of how to add water to a pot on the stove.
