P is for Pumpkin.

Pumpkins are definitely new to us here in North Yorkshire. As a child I remember spending hours cutting through my turnip/swede ready for a candle so I could go trick or treating. Pupkins are certainly easier to deal with and very decorative unlike the humble turnip.

A question for you - How to make a Pumpkin Pie? You see I am making one for the first time for the Pumpkin Festival on Saturday and haven't got a clue. Many reading this will have vast experience and many ideas so please shout up!

  2. Hi Denise,
    Love your festive spirit! BTW,why don't you search Google for numerous recipes.

    1. I know I could but knowing what works well amongst our friends across the pond is an advantage of ABC Wednesday don't you think?

  3. Here in the states you can cheat real easy and make a lovely pumpkin pie with pumpkin pie filling from a can. It is available in all our grocery stores especially this time of year.

  4. Hope you found the recipe. Enjoy the Pumpkin Festival :)

  5. No idea about a pumpkin pie. In Belgium Halloween wasn't popular at all, I heard about it for the first time in 2006 from Bloggers !
    Now it has started and becomes each year a little more !

  6. Great choice for P - very timely. Sorry I'm no help with the pie. Have a happy Halloween.

  7. Hi! Nice pumpkin photo! Thanks for sharing.

  8. Pumpkins are such cheerful things and colour Autumns so wonderfully! Here is a recipe for Halloween Pumpkin Pie:
    My "P" stands for PHILLIP ISLAND!

  9. No pictures of Pumpkins but I have something in Purple :)

    so P for Purple for me


  10. I love pumpkin pie. My recipe is to buy one at the grocery store bakery. They make them right there and taste better than I could make. - Margy

  11. I made it from scratch once, simply to have the experience. It didn't taste as good as making it with a can of pumpkin. But, I probably did something wrong. It was definitely an experience. Cleaning out the pumpkin seeds first, then struggling with cutting the pumpkin up into pieces to roast in the oven. I don't recall instructions. No doubt you can find a good recipe on the Internet. Best of luck!

  12. Add corn syrup for sweetener is a trick.

    My P post is not as edilble :) --
