Looking at all the recipes, found out that most of them were an adaptation of this one from Allrecipes.com. After reading all the comments and suggestions, decided to make a smaller batch and a less sweeter one. I reduced the amount of puree, sugar and apple juice. Since the apple juice I used already is sweetened, I cut it in half from its original recipe.
The result is amazing. A dark colored caramelized spread with a nutty+pumpkin flavor!
Based on the recipe found at AllRecipes.com
