Pumpkin Post

Euan and his Dad Carved this pumpkin (and scooped out the yucky insides) for Halloween.  What better way to start November than with a pan full of pumpkin.
I steamed the pumpkin until it was tender and then Whizzed it with my hand blender.  It made a big pot of Pumpkin Puree.

Great.  Now what to do with the big pot of Pumpkin Puree?

I made this recipe for Pumpkin Pie.  Naughty but nice.
I tried this recipe for Iced Pumpkin Cookies.  These have gone down very well with Euan. They taste like Pumpkin Pie in a cookie.  Yum.
                    The 'Piece de resistance' for me however was this recipe for Roasted Garlic, Pumpkin and Potato Mash it was absolutely delicious with Roast Lamb.
I have eaten so much Pumpkin in the last couple of weeks...pies, cookies, soups, roasted. . . it is a wonder I am not orange.  I love pumpkin.  Do you have any recipe ideas for pumpkin that you think I might like?  


  1. Wow - good use of the Pumpkin:)

  2. Pumpkin Bread! You're so good with your cooking! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. Goodness me, you didn't waste and inch of that pumpkin! Mine didn't really have any inside apart from seeds so it's nice to see what use I could make if I bought a better quality one next year.

  4. I LOVE the mash recipe! Going to have to try that one!

  5. Ooooo I like the look of that mash Lucy. I roast my pumpkin with garlic, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, turmeric a bit of chilli and a sprinkling of salt and pepper. When it's looking golden brown I whizz it with my stick blender and some tasty stock, hey presto spicy soup delicious! In fact I think I'll have some for my tea tonight, yuuuuummmmmyyyyy. x

  6. I only know pumpkin Nan once had pumpkin jam...she said it was yuck though! Your pumpkin looks nice and spooky ^_^


I appreciate and enjoy reading all of the feedback from your comments. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and sharing your thoughts.
