Sweet pumpkin pie – yuck

sucrine du berryIt’s OK folks, it’s back to gardening today. You can come out from behind the sofa. I’ve pulled myself together.

*Audible sighs of collective relief*

I’m pretty chuffed with my unusual pumpkins. As Barb (sorry, no link provided) so brilliantly commented on my original post about these, they are indeed Sucrine du Berry. Must be – they look nothing like any others I’ve seen.

Pumpkin cut in half

It’s a traditional old French variety – and a delicious one, as it turns out (sweeter than other pumpkins I’ve tried).

Probably not the best for savoury recipes, but no doubt brilliant for pumpkin pie, in the American style.

Shame I don’t like pumpkin pie, huh?

    Maybe it would be good in a spicy soup?

    I made pumpkin pie once. Bleeeeeuuuughh. Never again. Soup is always a good bet, the spicier the better. Or bread!

    It’s possible that your distaste for pumpkin pie comes from not using the proper recipe which comes from the can of One-Pie pumpkin puree. I stripped a label off years ago and pasted it in my binder. (The very recipe is on New England Recipes. com.) I use it even when I’ve started with a fresh pumpkin or winter squash. It would most certainly work for sweet potato pie… I wonder if carrot pie would be too strange?

    Have you been polishing your pumpkin? There’s quite a shine on it. I think I’ll go back behind the sofa again.

    If you are not keen on pumpkin pie, try making muffins. :)

    I like how you’ve painted your nails.

    I never got anything done with my pumpkins before they rotted…oh well..it wasn’t like I grew them…they were given to me for halloween…I had bought seeds to grow some next year but all the talk about gross pie is putting me off just a little bit….hhmmmm
