Notes

Cane Sugar = Demerara Sugar
The pumpkin should be cleaned and cut into small cubes and baked for 45 mins at 350, then mashed and coated with honey. Then baked for another 45 mins at 350. Let it cool to 154 and add to mash.

For the vanilla bean vodka solution, two vanilla beans are cut in half. The seeds and goodies are then scraped into 4oz of vodka. Let the vodka sit for two weeks.
