The pumpkin fights back
Ahem ... actually, my favorite supermarket had a markdown deal: 99 cents for a pie pumpkin.
Couldn't resist, so took one home. (You can never have too much pumpkin, right?)
This one however, was not going to be dispatched as easily as its larger brethren. It took the services of a large knife and a rubber mallet ... thought we were going to have to use the power saw, LOL!
But dispatched he was, and he yielded about 4.5 cups of puree ... enough to make a batch of pumpkin butter.
