Zulu African Sweet and Creamy Mashed Pumpkin Recipe

½ stick unsalted butter
Salt to taste
Optional spices (1/2 teaspoons ground nutmeg, ground cinnamon and ¼ teaspoons orange extract and ground cloves) not traditional but adds a familiar flavor to the American palate.
Add all ingredients to a large pot and simmer for about 15 minutes, stirring constantly. Serve hot as you would sweet potatoes or mashed potatoes.
