Nothing like an early morning, late September frost on the pumpkin patch.... long rays of first sunlight, coffee in hand. It is at this very moment that I am reminded that pumpkin is my favorite shape. And how thrilling the heirloom blue pumpkins are! Somehow the transition of the seasons is made complete by the pumpkin. It represents everything that we love about Autumn, and lingers through the Holidays when it becomes the perfect pie.
We have a new batch of Pumpkin Butter ready, by the way!
