Lots and lots of pumpkins.
Yesterday we covered about how to cut, cube, peel, and pressure can pumpkins. I want you to know that today I opened one of those jars, drained it, and mashed the pumpkin, and literally minutes later was putting 24 pumpkin coconut muffins into the oven. I made the batter using my Muffin Master Mix that is in my E-book ,The Master Mix Way, and they were fabulous, simple, and quick or quicker than pulling a packet of premixed muffin mix out of the cupboard and making them up.Pumpkin can also be cooked and then frozen in 2 cup portions.
I have a recipe for Delicious Pumpkin Bread that uses exactly 2 cups of pumpkin puree, so that is what I freeze in blocks in freezer bags.
Here is the recipe for that Â

Here is a recipe for this one:
Fantastic Fall Beef Stew:
In a heavy frying pan, place 2 Tbs EV Olive oil, 1 tsp garlic salt, 1 cup diced onions, 1/2 tsp thyme, oregano, and parsley. Add 1 lb beef or venison stew meat, and cook until desired doneness. Add 1/2 cup diced celery, 4 potatoes cubed, and 1 pint of carrots (1 can or 2 regular). To this add 3 Tbs worcesteshire sauce, 1 tsp hot pepper sauce, and 4 tsp of beef bullion. After this simmers for a bit (I add in the liquid from the can of carrots or pints of home-canned potatoes I sometimes use in place of fresh), then add 5-6 cups water, and 1 cup of pumpkin cubes, cubed to about 1″. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened and well blended, as well as veggies cooked through. Takes about 30 minutes. You could also put all this in a crockpot after searing the meat and let it cook on low for about 6-8 hours. Serve with homemade biscuits, and you are good to go for dinner! The herbs and pumpkin really make the difference in amazing-ness for this stew.
I hope you enjoyed today’s post with two recipes on how to use up pumpkins you have sitting around. Tomorrow we are going to cover how to dehydrate and use pumpkin in more recipes! Below my signature picture I linked a few more pumpkin recipes that looked absolutely delicious and got shared over on the Welcoming House FB Page.
Don’t forget to vote!Â
Today I am incredibly thankful to live in a country where I have a say about who runs it, where my right to vote is guaranteed by a constitution, and where it is an honored privilege in a small town.
Many Blessings to you and yours,
