Top 10 What to do with Pumpkins
Halloween and my world is full of pumkins.
My top 10 what to do with them!
How I do it:
1 package of Jam Sugar.
In Germany I use a sugar which needs 1 part sugar and 3 parts of the fruit.
So 500 g sugar will be mixed with 1500 g pumpkin.
I follow the directions on the package.
And I add a little of cinnamon and one apple.
Apples contain pectin which is needed for gelling.
The apple reduces the pumpkin a bit.
I am a sloppy cook.
So I don’t have any real amounts.
1 – 2 liters of water, in a pot, and add a good amount of pumpkin cubes.
You can also add some onions and some potatoes.
If you like carrots, add some too.
But make sure that the pumpkin has the majority.
Add some good powdered veggie broth and let simmer until tender.
Now puree the soup with a food processor.
Season to taste with salt, pepper and a little cinnamon.
You can also add some fluid cream or creme fraiche and roasted almonds with the soup.
Maybe you have a favorite pumpkin soup recipe?
Tell me 🙂
Just use your favorite muffin recipe and add some grated or smashed pumkin to the recpe.
And season with a little cinnamon.
I need a good tasty pumpkin pie recipe.
Please share one!
I use to cook pumpkin cubes until tender, but not too tender.
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Add some coconut milk or cream
In an extra pot I’ll prepare some tortellinis.
And then I’ll serve the tortellinis with the pumpkin.
You can store it in jars to make the wonderful pies and jams any time during the year.
And you can deep freeze it.
Yummy yummy …
Tomato-sauce + béchamel sauce + lasagne noodles + sliced pumpkin.
In a lasagne dish and in the oven.
Just decorate the garden with them.
Write a book about it 😉
The best thing you can do with a pumpkin is to carve a wonderful Jack o’lantern out of it.
Do you love the glowing of the lanterns during the season?
