Pie Pumpkins5:37 PM
Note to self: always write down what is planted where.
I have 62 New England Pumpkin Pie pumpkins, 2 (rather small and mostly still green) Jack o Lantern pumpkins and no butternut squash.
I have started baking them down for some people who want pumpkin and won't do it themselves or don't know how. Even though it's super easy...I just cut the pumpkin in half, clean out the pumpkin guts, put each half upside down in a baking dish, pour water in the dish and bake in the oven at 375 until it's soft. Then I scoop it out and puree it in the food processor. I'm also going to bake down some pumpkins for my food swap next week.
I may have to put some on neighboring front porches (with a note on how to prepare it), ring the door bell and run like crazy!
