I make pumpkin pies out of regular, large pumpkins every year.

This year for the first time I am so excited to find a super easy way to cook them:

I made pies out of regular pumpkins years ago & they turned out great! If I remember correctly I just cut up the pumpkins, cooked until soft, took off the skins & put it thru a sieve. This is what I used as puree then added whatever ingredients the pie called for. Yummy!

Well, Now that I'm Bored with (as I thought) nothing to Put Up, I happened to look out my porch door window and saw my 2 huge Halloween Pumpkins....Hmmmmm I thought...Can I cook these up for Pies????
Why not ! ! !
I baked them and then took off the skin, pureed them in my food processor and am now baking off the excess water in the oven. Like making pumpkin butter but with no spices or sugar.
I guess we'll see how this works out....As I usually use Pie Pumkins.
I'm making pies for our Local Police and Fire Departments for the holidays. Don't forget the Whipped Cream ! ! !

What to talk about?

Indoor potted herbs 101.

Is there a "Dummies" book for this?, if so for Dummies, or at least for first-timers. My specific issue is insufficient light, no money to buy grow lights so plan to use fluorescent lightbulbs in normal existing lamps, with the pots beneath the lamps, and can I plant them right now? Do I have to wait til Spring?

Thanks from me too. We went to our last outdoor farmers market this morning. It is 28 degrees out there. It is a little sad to say "have a nice winter" to folks who provide us with good food all summer. The market continues indoors throughout the winter, but not all of these people will be there.

Thanks so much KAKIPOPUP, that old thread bothered me, but I didn't have enough knowledge to volunteer.

Do you have a recipe / instructions for raspberry vinegar?

And what do you use it for besides salad dressing?
