1/4 cup store-bought pumpkin butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar, firmly packed
2 tablespoons melted butter
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
1 teaspoon salt

1. Drain potatoes and mash in a medium bowl. Squeeze orange(s) to make 1/3 cup juice; reserve orange shells for serving, if desired.
2. Add 1/3 cup orange juice, pumpkin butter, brown sugar, butter and ginger to potatoes; stir or whip to blend.
3. Heat in microwave until hot or in a saucepan over medium heat; stir frequently.
