This Thanksgiving eve has been filled with baking. My home smells wonderful however, I still have to clean up a bit before I can think of going to bed.
I roasted my sugar pumpkins this morning.
About an hour later, they look like this:
I let them cool and then cut them in half, scraping the seeds out. (The color is a bit off on these photos, however these particular pumpkins were not very orange. They are more like a squash yellow.)
Into the food processor they go. Nothing added, please!
I then followed a Martha recipe which is undocumented. It is in the oven right now baking, almost done. Can you smell it?
Honestly, using fresh pumpkin is not labor intensive and is almost as easy as opening a can. But feels so much more smug.
I’ll show you the pie tomorrow.
I still have a sink of dishes waiting. For that? I am not so grateful!
