How To Choose Pumpkins To Carve And Pumpkins For Baking

 

Today I went to a local store to pick up a pumpkin to use for a party. I think it has been 25 years since I purchased a pumpkin for Halloween to carve, etc. The sign said $.89 on this HUGE box of pumpkins….okay so I throw one in the shopping cart and continue shopping. Well, as I am checking out the guy asked me where I got the pumpkin…I said “over there” he said well those are SUGAR Pumpkins. What are SUGAR pumpkins you ask? Well, they are used for making pumpkin pies. Hmmmm. I thought a pumpkin was a pumpkin. Period. Okay, I pay $6.35 for this small pumpkin because I am not getting in line again. That sign said $.89 a pound.

 

So of course now I am doing the research on SUGAR pumpkins. I must make a disclaimer here…if I am going to have pumpkin pie I will BUY the pie at Costco. Add some whipped cream and I am good to go! My mother always made fresh pies for Thanksgiving….sorry Mom I did not carry on that tradition!
