Craving Pumpkin Recipes
It is inevitable that even here in the deep south that once Fall starts I will start craving all things pumpkin. This year it started early with the pumpkin beers as the brewers jumped the shark and released them in August. I can’t complain too much because it means I will get to try more pumpkin beers this year but the excitement is starting wear off already. If you haven’t tasted Southern Tiers Pumking or Warlock yet then you need to apologize to your taste buds and run out and find some right now. If you happen on a bottle of their Choklat and you in any way enjoy chocolate you owe yourself to try this incredible beer.
Now my focus is on cooking and baking with pumpkin. I already schooled our local brewers about their choice of pumpkins for cooking. Those pretty pumpkin you see all over the grocery stores taste horrible and don’t even think about baking with them. You might as well use a butternut squash because it is more closely related to the pumpkin we get out of a can. If you can’t get your hands on Neck Pumpkins then you might as well use canned pumpkin. I have been browsing the internet for weeks gathering pumpkin recipes to share with you.
Here is a list of some of he most delish pumpkin recipes I have seen so far this season.
