Bye, Bye Mr. Pumpkin
Something new was added this year: We bought a small white pumpkin, which produced about 3.5 cups of puree. I have to admit, cooked white pumpkin looks a lot like potatoes, or turnips ;)
Not sure what I'll do with it yet .. I may try it in some pumpkin bread.
The giant pumpkin from Aldi made 10 cups of roasted and 8 cups of puree. I'm planning on using some of the puree to make some pumpkin butter. Never done that before, but the apple butter came out so well, I got inspired.
In the meantime, I have lots of pumpkin seeds to toast!
