Pumpkin Pie Chai: Bron: William Sonoma "The Pie Cookbook"

Pumpkin pie. Some love it, while others detest it. I'm in the previous catagory. I love this dessert for many reasons. First, it's a rareity to enjoy a piece of it, and it's usually reserved for holiday season, in particular Halloween and Thanksgiving. It's a symbol of fall. Its flavor is fall, nice and spicy, a bit nutty, and warm. The first mention of pumpkins was around the 1500's, as it was a new product discovered in Central America from the early European explores. They of course brought the orange beauty back to the shores of England, and thus stemmed the boom of the English pie revolution. Early English cookbooks dating back to the 1600's, showed and instructed cooking the pumpkin together with milk, straining then cooking in a crust. Not much is different today. Pumpkin in a tinForget itIt's too easy to pick a pumpkin (really any will do), slice it in half, bake, cool it, then scrape it out and puree together with milk or cream, kruiden, sugar and a bit of corn starch to stabilize it.
It's a revolution brewing for over 500 years. Get your pumpkin pie on, with out the can
