Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
I'm with you on convenience, Charmion. It isn't difficult to prepare from scratch, but sometimes having some of the work done for you is good.
Apart from pumpkin scones Ozzies haven't really gotten into the sweet pumpkin thing - although I do remember my Nanna Davis making gramma pie. As a child, I could never quite decide if I liked it or not.
Our autumn trips to Ontario have coincided with Tim Horton's pumpkin spice muffin season. One bite of those goodies and we were goners, now I make my own; canned pumpkin is unknown here, so I bake cut-up pumpkin (leaving the skin on, no seasoning) in the oven until cooked, peel, and puree the flesh. It keeps in the freezer in one cup bags, many recipes seem to use one cup.
Haven't made any for a while, I can hear them calling......
