It's time for the Blue Pumpkins!

It's time for the Blue Pumpkins.Blue Pumpkins

We are a family that likes pumpkin.  A little Pumpkin can go a long way.  But the best pumpkins for eating are not the Orange ones you get for decoration.  The best Pumpkins for eating are Blue Pumpkins.  There are all sorts of Pumpkins, Red, White, Blue (very American type food), and even Orange.  There may be more I am unaware of.

The Blue Pumpkin actually looks kind of gray, but who wants a gray pumpkin?  The Blues have more meat than all the rest.

My wife gets the Pumpkins and slices them in quarters, cooks them in the oven, scraps out the meat, purees it in the food processor and freezes it.

There is nothing better than a true homemade pumpkin pie, but we also have pumpkin cookies, pumpkin cake, pumpkin bread, pumpkin fritters, pumpkin soup (several types), and other great dishes.  One pumpkin can go a long way.

If you want you do not have to puree it all.  My wife has fried some too.  Not bad, but not the family favorite.  I really like the savory soup recipes (rather than the sweeter soups). 

Might be able to get my wife to share some recipes with us, but go on line there are a lot of good ones; that's what my wife does. 

Good Eating!

Now read again, Blue Pumpkins is what they are called.  They look more gray in color.  You may have to ask the produce manager about them or go to a produce stand that actually carries them.

Gene,

How cool! I've been wanting to cook some fall recipes. I'll have to look for the Blue Pumpkins. Thanks!

Your friend in the Cosmic Cow Pie.

I just bought some blue pumpkins at Harry's Market on Hwy 54 in White Cross outside of Chapel Hill, NC. Though not bright or deep blue, more grayish-greenish-blue, I have made some folks smile by giving these to them.  They are pretty cool.

In fact, I was wondering where these blue pumpkins were grown locally?

Sharon I do not know if they are grown locally to you.  We have them local.  The real joy of a Blue Pumpkin is in the eating of them.  My wife bought three this year and is in the process of baking them and getting all the meat out.  Most will be frozen for use during the year.  Soup, Bread, Pancakes, Pie, etc . . .
