The food our family eats depends much upon what we are harvesting. We had zucchini everything for awhile and then apple everything and today we start in on our pie pumpkins.
This morning I peeled and cut into our first Pie Pumpkin, separated the seeds out – some to roast and some to save for next year’s planting.
The pumpkin flesh was then cut into pieces and boiled in water until soft. Drain the water and then mash the pumpkin and use in your favorite recipe.
Here is the Pumpkin Bread recipe:
(Makes one medium loaf or three mini pans)
In a large mixing bowl blend liquid ingredients together:
1/4 C. Oil
1 C honey
1 C pumpkin
In medium mixing bowl thoroughly blend dry ingredients:
1 3/4 C. whole wheat pastry flour
1 1/4 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1 1/2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/4 t. ground clove
Blend dry ingredients into wet ingredients just until thoroughly combined. I added 3/4 C. chocolate chips and 1/2 C. oats to this recipe.
Fill greased an and bake large pan at 325 degrees for 55 minutes - for the mini pans, I would guess about 35 minutes (until tester comes out clean).
On a side note ~
We all had a good laugh this morning when Abraham clipped himself on the nose with the play clips. I missed snapping a picture of the moment but the laughter will remain within us today.
Have a happy day.
