It is almost Halloween which means we have carved pumpkins to be seen in another post. Now! Down to business. What does one do with the guts and seed of a carved pumpkin? Well my roommate is roasting the seeds, but I used the guts. I used the guts to make pumpkin bread and pumpkin juice. Both of these recipes come from my Unofficial Harry Potter Cook Book. I am so excited about this post because both turned out really delicious.
First of all, here are the ingredients.
Then to make a puree of the pumpkin I just put the guts in the blender. Do a little at a time. I use the puree for the bread and I strained the puree for the juice.
I didn't really follow the instructions in the cookbook, I just mixed everything together and made my own tweaks:
- Change the confectioners sugar to brown sugar for the bread.
- Add cinnamon and sugar to the juice.
- Melt the butter to make it easier to mix for the bread (mix wet ingredients separate from dry)
I hope you enjoyed these minor instructions for my pumpkin treats and I hope it makes your fall delicious. Let me know what you thought in the comments below and don't forget to connect with Moonie-Mag Malan on social media.
