Ah… pumpkin

Posted in Funny, Recipes

pumpkinI love fall because it gives me a chance to incorporate one of my favorite things into my baking… pumpkin!

Last year I discovered the joy of actually baking with pumpkin. I made pumpkin pies from scratch. It was a lot of work, but OMG were the pies good.

So, when pumpkins came into grocery stores, I lugged one home. And today, I hacked it to pieces, baked it, pureed it, and started baking with it. I started out with some Pumpkin Walnut Muffins and some Pumpkin Biscuits. I have about 10 or 12 cups of pumpkin left, so there are cookies and gingerbread and loafs and so much more in the works.

Of course, all my recipes are going up on Baking Low Fat... here’s a sneak peek at what I’m making for breakfast tomorrow morning. Ianiv is quite spoiled this week!

Why do I like pumpkin? Well, after the annoying part of cutting it up with crappy knives, it really is a great food to work with. It allows me to take out the fat in many recipes since it binds and moistens like many fats. Plus, it is so yummy. Goes so amazingly well with fall flavours like molasses and nutmeg and ginger.

So, if you’ve never actually done anything with a pumpkin but carve it and stick in a candle, take my suggestion and eat it!

Oh – if you do want to eat pumpkin, I suggest one of the sweeter varieties like the generic Pie Pumpkin you’ll find in the grocery store.
