La Fondue Tarte à la Citrouille

  • Ingredients

    SWEET ORANGE AND PUMPKIN BROTH

    • 1 container of 1.75 litre orange carrot and mango juice
    • 3 x 400 ml containers whole coconut milk (1200 ml total)
    • 2 cups pumpkin pie filling
    • ½ cup of your favourite caramel sauce, or more, to taste
    • 2 to 3 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice

    RICOTTA DESSERT SAUCE WITH ORANGE ZEST

    • ½ cup ricotta cheese
    • ¼ cup caramel sauce
    • ¼ cup pumpkin pie filling
    • ¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
    • Crushed hard caramel candy (optional)
    • 2-3 pinches of orange zest (optional)

    SUGGESTED DIPPING INGREDIENTS

    • Fresh lasagna pasta (cut into circles, if preferred), diced pumpkin flesh, cooked shredded spaghetti squash, orange or clementine segments, golden sultanas, mini carrot muffins
  • Preparation

    • For the ricotta dessert sauce with orange zest, mix all the ingredients in a bowl at least 1 hour before serving and set aside in the refrigerator.
    • For the broth, place all the ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Simmer over low heat for 15 minutes.
    • Arrange your dipping ingredients on serving plates.
    • Sift the stock, pour the required amount into the Fondussimo set using a pitcher, and enjoy.

    A few tips

    • Pumpkin flesh makes an excellent fondue dipping ingredient; as a general rule, small pumpkins are tastier than large decorative ones. To prepare a pumpkin, cut it in half, scoop its flesh out, slice it into segments of less than 2 inches, and use a peeler to remove its skin.
    • Spaghetti squash is also an amazing fondue ingredient because of all the broth it can absorb. To prepare, cut it in half, place it on a baking sheet – cut side down – and bake it at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 45 minutes, or until its flesh can be easily shredded.
