What Fall Tastes Like: Apple Pumpkin Sauce

What Fall Tastes Like: Apple Pumpkin Sauce

Last year about this time I binged on pumpkin dip. I fell in love so deeply with a sweet pumpkin dip that I couldn’t go more than a few hours without sneaking to the fridge and snarfing down a handful of ginger snaps and a mound of pumpkin dip.

Several days of this proved dangerous. I overdid it. I ate too much pumpkin and haven’t had any since then. At least not until I saw a recipe for pumpkin bacon waffles with pumpkin sauce.

Pumpkin? Bacon? Waffles? How can I say no to that?

So, I didn’t say no. I made my own. But not before coming across anĀ apple pie dip. Amazing.

That got me thinking. If I had to give the fall season ONE flavor that would be tough. But if I could pick two, well, then, apple and pumpkin sauce would be it.

There you have it. I’ve declared apple pumpkin sauce the official flavor of the fall. But one quick word to the wise…don’t over do it. You CAN eat too much pumpkin.

  1. Oh my yum…either one sounds great. I have yet to make anything pumpkin. Bad food blogger. I must make amends soon!

    If I had to choose one, I’d go with apples (which I never get tired of). But pumpkins would be a great second choice!

    Oh saucy one,

    Is the apple pumpkin sauce more of an eat-with-a-spoon-instead-of-Nutella sort of thing, or something you might drape over pasta? I’m definitely curious about applications of this sauce.

      Excellent question, King-Conor. This sauce was quite sweet, so I don’t think I’d want it on pasta. I did, however, like it on waffles and in yogurt.

  4. wow That screams AUTUMN out loud! Love the sauce. Bet it would be great with some pasta too.

  5. Oh this looks delicious. I love homemade sauces and the idea of combining apple and pumpkin together is so yummy!

    I totally agree that pumpkin/apple is the flavor for fall. Maybe we should call is appkin. Anyway, that dip sounds amazing.
