Finally! I’m done with grading schoolwork and can do something fun. At least for a moment, before I need to make pizza for supper and take care of the turkey carcasses I am cooking for broth.
I’ve been wanting to write about my new experience this fall. Two weeks ago, I canned pumpkin for the first time. A friend had more pumpkins than she could use, great big ones, so I decided to give it a shot. Hey, why not?
Amy and her mom came over and we worked together.
Ready to carve
The first cut is the hardest.
Then we chopped it all up
…peeled the skin off and ran it through a grinder
…and canned it!
We ended up with 50 quarts to split between us, so that should keep us in pumpkin pies and muffins for awhile. It was an interesting project and very rewarding–it’s always fun to try something new!
Amy had a fun day, too, of course, keeping us all entertained!
