After gathering a pickup truck load of pumpkins from the pumpkin patch with our granddaughter Avah,   we wondered what else can we do besides setting some out for decorations? How about making pumpkin bread!  To make processing the pumpkins easy, put one in the oven to bake at 350 degrees to tenderize it. Remove, cut in two, scrape out the seeds and then spoon the pumpkin flesh from the skin. The small pumpkins, also known as Pie Pumpkins, about 6” in diameter have about 2 cups of pumpkin.  You can also freeze this at this time for baking on another day. I am seeking a pumpkin soup recipe and more since we have lots of pumpkins and I hate to waste them. Plan to roast some seeds too. Anyway, Enjoy!
