So, I captured the latest "gift" left near my front door by the cat yesterday morning. But today I find that it so grosses me out to look at the photos - I just can't share them with you. Even on Halloween. Mr. Nature agrees. Maybe next year.So, I share with you my recent fresh pumpkin soup instead. MMMMMM, was it yummy!
Last week, I made WONDERFUL pumpkin pie...and pumpkin soup. I boiled the fresh pumpkin first, then had the cooked pumpkin to use for recipes. I roasted the seeds with salt.
Here are the recipes I used:
for the pie, I used my blender to smooth the cooked pumpkin, and followed the recipe.
However, I don't like processed sweetened condensed milk, so I used this recipe to substitute for it: http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,183,151170-244199,00.html
This pie didn't even last 48 hours in our house. I made my own butter crust with this recipe:
The pie recipe will actually make two standard 9-inch pies, so make two crusts. I am making another batch today.
Have a safe and yummy All Hallow's Eve
