For the past few weeks, we have been busily working to harvest and process what is left in our garden. Many things are eaten right away, but it is so exciting to be able to preserve some to eat this winter. Our current focus...
From the pumpkins in the garden cart, we then get this... (I cut the pumpkins in half, and cook at 400 degrees for about 40-45 minutes, until they are soft. After they cool, I peel them, cut them, and throw them in the food processor.)
Most go into freezer bags to use throughout the winter, but some end up in delicious goodies like... YUM! Pumpkin whoopie pies. I used this recipe. I added a bit of sugar (suprise!) to the frosting, and I didn't have pumpkin pie spice, so I improvised (suprise!) with cinnamon, ginger, allspice, & cloves. I squeezed out a couple of extra whoopie pies from the recipe. Seriously good. (for the taste buds, not for the waist line.)
More harvest recipes to come this week!
