Food Friday's: Pumpkin pie in a Jar

Here's a great recipe that I came across in my trusty 4H cook book. Now you can easily make pumpkin pie at any time of the year with fresh pumpkin. I always use up the carved pumpkins after Halloween because I feel bad just throwing away perfectly good pumpkins.

Pumpkin Pie in a Jar

Peel, remove seeds and cut pumpkin into small pieces. Bake, steam or boil in small amount of water until tender. Then put through a sieve. Measure the pumpkin pulp and any juice remaining. Then to each 3 cups of pumpkin add the following:

2 cups sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tbsp molasses (optional)

Mix well together and bring to a boil, simmering until quite thick. Stir often to prevent sticking. Seal in hot sterile jars. May be put in hot water for 10 minutes to be sure that they seal.


2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 1/4 cups prepared pumpkin

Beat eggs well. Add milk and pumpkin, mix well together. Put into unbaked pie shell. Bake at 375F until golden brown.

My newest creation

OK, there is a story that goes along with this. If you want the details you can go to my personal blog to read it.

This is our new passport holder. I planned and cut it out last night, and then sewed it together this morning. I am pleased with how it turned out. It will fit nicely in my purse or in the glove box, or really just about anywhere. Not to mention that it is stylish and not likely to accidentally end up in the trash.

If you were looking forward to today's Food Friday post, I am sorry that I didn't post one. I've been too tired, and still to tired to think of anything I am heading off to bed. Maybe I'll make it up tomorrow.

The magic number 57

Well it's all over folks. My Totally Random Give-away i over. I was a little worried there for a bit that I wouldn't reach my preselected number of comments. But Kelly O Made it happen with her comment on my Tutorial Tuesday: Bunny Bowling post the 57th comment. Kelly made a comment on nearly every post since the announcement of the Random Give-Away and she is a follower of my blog. So lucky Kelly will win her favorite item in my shop, which I believe is this carseat canopy. Along with this she will receive a special surprise that she will just have to wait to see what it is. Thank you all for reading my blog and leaving comments. I love to read what you are all thinking. Keep reading and keep commenting.
