Tried something new today based on info from another Spark person's personal blog. She was dealing w/ gall bladder stones. I've had fatty liver issues. Thought it would be worth a try!
(1 site suggested raw shredded beet every day!)

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
Juice of 1/2 lime
Pinch of sugar
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 pound red beets, peeled and grated
1/2 pound carrots, peeled and grated
1/2 cup thinly sliced basil leaves
2 tablespoons finely shredded fresh flat-leaf parsley
(I added 1 shredded apple as well.)

Directions:
In a large bowl, combine the vinegar, lime juice, sugar, and a large pinch each of salt, and pepper. Whisk to combine. Gradually whisk in oil. Add beets, carrots, basil, and parsley. Toss to combine. Taste and adjust for seasoning.
* Salad does better when allowed to "rest" for at least an hour to let flavors blend.

Here is my best guess about the smaller portions.

1 1/2 cups juice
3/4 c sugar
1 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice.

Hope this helps.

Just checked there are 3 1/2 cups of prepared pumpkin in a can. Hope that this helped.

I'm trying to figure out how to divide this if I used a can of pumpkin.

Nanna2 One, as a guess/rough estimate, about how many cups of pumpkin do you typically get from two medium pumpkins?

Thanks,
~ Pam

Right at the top of this I have to say that I don't often "measure" things. I will do my best to put this down as I did it.

2 med. pumpkins.
1 qt. white grape juice or apple juice
1 1/2 c sugar
2 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice

Split and de-seed pumpkins. Quarter and bake for 1 hr in 350 oven. Let cool till able to touch. Peel and cut pumpkin into med. chunks. Put in a dutch oven. Pour juice over top and cook over low until most of the moisture is gone. 3 to 5 hrs. Add sugar and pie spice to mixture. Cook for 1 hr. longer. Put into sterilize pt jars and refrigerate. Makes 4 pts.

Using smaller portions a can of pumpkin can be used, not pumpkin pie filling. Slenda can be used instead of sugar, add until sweet enough for you.

I don't have the nutritional information. Sorry

Thanks!

Count your blessings!

Easy Fruit & Flavor Oatmeal Cereal Muffins

Want your oatmeal cereal "to go"? This easy, versatile recipe lets you mix your favorite flavored oatmeal with oat bran and dried fruit for a dense, filling, and tasty oat muffin.

Ingredients:
- Nonstick cooking spray
- 1 box of flavored instant oatmeal packets (12.3 oz)
- 16 ounces of oat bran (1 box Hodgson Mill Oat Bran hot cereal works great)
- 4 ounces of dried fruit (raisins, cranberries, etc.)
- 5 ½ cups of BOILING water
- Optional: sugar or Splenda

Directions:
1) Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2) Spray 2 12-count cupcake/muffin pans with nonstick cooking spray (DO NOT use cupcake liners! Muffins will stick to the liners.)
3) Combine cereal packets, oat bran, and dried fruit in a large bowl.
4) Add boiling water. Stir until mixed and the batter starts to thicken.
5) Spoon batter evenly into the cupcake/muffin pans.
6) OPTIONAL: Sprinkle sugar or Splenda on top of muffins. (Worth the few extra calories in my opinion.)
7) Bake for 25 minutes.
8) Cool for 10 minutes. Use a butter knife to loosen muffins around the edges before removing from the pan.

Makes 24 muffins.

Storage:
Store in the refrigerator or freezer within 24 hours. I store half in the refrigerator and half in the freezer.

Combo Suggestions:
- Quaker Oats Strawberries & Cream instant oatmeal plus diced dried pineapple (my favorite)
- Apple & Cinnamon instant oatmeal plus raisins
- Quaker Oats Weight Control Banana Bread Instant Oatmeal plus dried cranberries and a mashed banana
- Whatever you like!
