Mostly we look at them as jack o' lanterns,

But pumpkins are easy to grow, provide a lot of good stuff for the table, and give us something to do on Walpurgisnacht.

Today I am cooking down jack o' lanterns for pie fixins. Thanksgiving and holidays are coming up soon.

Below you will find my pumpkin pie recipe. Now before you get your tits in a twist, remember, this is a HOLIDAY recipe. You are allowed to save up and be decadent on the holidays. Matter of fact, by pinching pennies all year, it makes the holiday feast that much more special....so live cheap during the rest of the year and live it up during the holidays

2 cups cooked/mashed pumpkin
6 eggs
2 cups heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cups sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 cup grated fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup dark rum

Fill a pie shell with aluminum foil and beans and bake for 12 minutes in a 425 F. oven. Take the beans and foil out and start soaking the beans for turkey chili.

Thoroughly mix all the ingredient together with a whisk. Pour the stuff into the baked pie crust and bake at 375 F. until the custard is set the way you like it.
