What can be naughty or nice and starts out in a pumpkin patch? Not sure? Okay, here’s another tip. It can be served cold or hot and also contains a heaping dose of autumn apples. Give up? Why it’s pumpkin hot sauce and after the first try, you won’t want to eat a fall, holiday meal without some. “What’s pumpkin hot sauce?’, you say. Well, lean in my pumpkin loving friends and we’ll tell you:

It’s actually a mixture of pumpkin butter, hot sauce, curry and a handful of other ingredients. You can make it any consistency desired and use it in a number of pump-alicious ways. For instance, some folks like to use it in place of chicken broth when making their homemade stuffing. Others love to pour it over their roasted turkey, rib-eye steaks or mashed potatoes instead of traditional gravy.We’ve even seen pumpkin hot sauce drizzled over pan-roasted vegetables and used as a basis for soups. And by the way, the soups may be hot or cold. Speaking of cold, the hot sauce infused mixture could be used to make homemade pumpkin ice cream too. Here’s the basic hot sauce recipe to get the pumpkin party started:

Place all of the ingredients into a sauce pan and hit it with an immersion blender to break up the chunks of vegetables or apples. Next, turn the heat on and let the pumpkin mixture simmer until you’re pleased with the consistency.  Continue by removing the pumpkin hot sauce from the pan and using it as desired. As long as it’s stored in an air-tight container and stirred every so often, it should keep in the fridge for at least four to seven days without separating.

If you grew up in the 80s, there’s a strong likelihood that you remember watching John Hughes movies with your BFFs and rocking out to MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball, Friday Night Video Fights and Club MTV. Well, why not round up everyone and relive those glorious, high school days with the best party dips for fall? They’re big on flavor and won’t keep you from sliding back into those spandex pants. Hey, we know that you secretly want to see if they still fit. So pull them out of the closet, call up the girls and let’s get this 80s party started!

The best party dips for fall are clearly Harvest Pumpkin Spice, Big Apple Strudel, Sea Salt Caramel Delight and Sinfully Cin-a-Bun. They’re sweet yet provocative, like Emilio Estevez and Judd Nelson in The Breakfast Club. And you won’t need Ilan Mitchell-Smith or Anthony Michael Hall’s computer science equipment to conjure up something good. A few sliced apples and bowls full of the party dips will do just fine.

With that said, consider pairing each of John Hughes’ movies with a different party dip. For example, load up the DVD player with European Vacation and serve Big Apple Strudel with dipping pretzels. Sinfully Cin-a-Bun would be the ideal accompaniment to The Breakfast Club and we can’t think of anything better to serve during a showing of Nate and Hayes than Kokomo Key Lime.

And if the BFFs want more than party dip, never fear. You could serve meat snacks or grilling meats Chicago-style. They’d fit in with films like Ferris Bueller’s Day Off or Planes, Trains and Automobiles. For instance, you could make Chicago meat franks or deep-dish pizza topped with our smoked ham and summer sausage.
