Pumpkin-y Goodness.....

Today growing in my cedar tree I found the most perfect little treat..... It was a golden nugget pumpkin just right for the pickin'.........
Not being able to help myself I chopped it open straight away and to my surprise it was just perfect....... So tonight we'll be feasting on delicious homegrown pumpkin with our dinner, YUMMO!!!!

I can't wait for the rest of my pumpkins to ripen now!!! I have visions of tiny little jars filled with pumpkin-y goodness lining the shelves of my pantry in the not too distant future.... I have a recipe for pumpkin jam that sounds divine but that's it... Do you have any great pumpkin preserving recipes???? I'd love to hear them if you do....

Hugs....... Jodie.....................


  1. Jealous! Im having a hard time with my pumpkins; one grew around the wire on the fence, so its not doing well. Then a rat nibbled on the only big one growing, and then the huge hail storm we had Sat tore my plant to shreds. Ill be lucky to get just one! Yours look fab; good luck with the cooking/preserving!

  2. I know there's a good pumpkin chutney recipe out there - will track it down for you if I can.
    Love the crochet ric rac.
    and toast in the middle of the night??!! Yikes!
