1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Your Best Pumpkin Recipes!! on: October 21, 2010 09:39:54 AM
For all the people out there that cant get 'proper' pumpkins like the ones in the states!
I'm in Denmark and looove pumpkin soup and pie and have tried and tried to figure out how to make it work - not much info out there!

the trick about making your own canned/frozen pumpkin here are great, and you can use the field/orange halloween ones the sell here, just pick the smallest ones, they are best (not grainy and has more flavor)
they can be used because they have not been specifically bred here for looks only (yet?) as they have in the states, where halloween/field pumpkins are normally larger, round and flat bottomed with a bland/watery taste

do NOT use the ones called decoration pumpkins (small fist sized) they are extremely bitter and some are treated with very harsh chemicals or wax to get them to look the way they do and keep for longer!

you can use butternut squash but the result will be very different as the butternut squash has a very specific and sweet type of flavour, so don't expect a typical pumpkin flavour:)

sometimes in the fall we can get Hokkaido pumpkins here in the big super markets (looks like a small field pumpkin) and they work well too!

my favorite pumpkin pie recipe from scratch are this http://www.pickyourown.org/pumpkinpie.php
and if you cant get evaporated milk, just use full fat milk (or cream if you like some fat on your bones!:P )

i love this thread, so many new things to try!

I never got further than a couple of sad attempts at making 2 ply yarn, but ill be digging some of my old supplies out of the back of my closet and giving it a go again following this thread! so excited to see everybody's results when we get that far!

(and I'm already making secrets plans for spiriting my moms spinningwheel over to my house in the dead of night:D)
