Actually, there are white pumpkins
on the porch...
And in the backyard...
They're waiting to be used for decorations
and to be placed with some heirloom pumpkins
that will soon be at our home.
Now that we've got a few pumpkins in the house,
I wanted to give you one of my favorite
French pumpkin recipes too
I was going to make this pumpkin soup recipe
since we've been having Autumn weather
the last few days, but now I hear
it's supposed to be
hot, hot, hot here once again.
I have included it here for you though
in case you're enjoying wonderful fall weather
where you live
I can't wait to make it here once it's cooler again
Soupe de Potiron
3 c water
1 onion, diced
1/2 T sugar
2 tsp salt
10 ounce can pumpkin puree
(no flavor... just pumpkin)
1 c milk
salt & freshly ground pepper
creme fraiche (if desired)
Bring water, onion, sugar, salt to boil
Cover & simmer 10 min
Whisk in pumpkin & bring to boil
Simmer uncovered for 5 min, stirring constantly
Puree mixture in food processor or blender
Pour back into saucepan and whisk in milk
Heat back to high simmer & season
with salt & pepper to taste
Serve with small dollop of creme fraiche
and light drizzle of olive oil if desired
We usually drizzle just a little bit
of olive oil on the very top
It is so good!
Our local grocer carries this brand
from France from time to time
but you can order it here if you're interested
in giving it a try and can't find it locally.
Make sure to serve with crusty, crunchy
French bread... Yum!
I'm headed to Petaluma this weekend
to the antiques fair and to see
my sweet friend, Michelle that owns
Summer Cottage Antiques
I'll be back next week with lots of photos
What are your plans for the weekend?
Happiness to you!
