Bye Bye Baby

It was time...it had been looking at me for 2 weeks now...I had been admiring it from afar, but to all good pumpkins come their final sacrifice....pumpkin pie!

My gorgeous pumpkin, 1 of 4, but the most perfect looking one I have seen, said goodbye to the world today. The seeds have been saved for next year...I have plenty to share with friends too.



I started by making a smiple puree by baking it until browned at the edges then scraping out the flesh and using my blender to make it smoooooth.



Half has been frozen in bags for a later date and the rest was combined with maple syrup, nutmeg and eggs to go into these little tartlets.



I served them with a dollop of whipped cream after dinner....



My little guy thinks they were delicious!

We eat pumpkin as a savoury vegetable, Lovely roasted/baked, or as a soup. Yours certainly look delicious.
