My favorite pie of all time is pumpkin. Plain, simple baked pumpkin custard, with cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg, maybe a few ground cloves (sorry mom, I know you prefer pumpkin chiffon...). Sweet potato and pecan pies are are also nice, and so is apple. But I'll take pumpkin pie any day over just about any other dessert.
These lovely organic pumpkins are from Snow's Bend Farm. We roasted them today, and pureed them.
Thursday we'll have savory pumpkin soup. Then the rest will be made into pies for Thanksgiving.
And, just in case you do not have the same holiday pie preferences as me...we're also making sweet potato, pecan and fudge. And two lovely combos -- sweet potato-pecan, and fudge-pecan.
You know where to find them...
