Turning into a Pumpkin
‘Tis the season. Pumpkin recipes abound…
If you are foresighted enough (and have time) to bake and puree the flesh of an actual real-live pumpkin, awesome! Bake it, puree it, and freeze it in half-cup portions–I put them into muffin tins and freeze them, and then take them out and store them all winter to pull out whenever I need some.
And the recipes themselves? Here are a few of my favorite things to do with pumpkin:
Pumpkin Pie without the Pie. Pumpkin custard is a favorite in our house, and it’s amazingly healthful. We wouldn’t dream of saving it for Thanksgiving–we eat it all winter.
One of my husband’s favorites: Crockpot Baked Pumpkin with Apples.
