Hey everyone,

If you grow pumpkins, you know you have to thin out the fruits once in a while in order to grow bigger ones.

you know that probably. but did you know you can make a very good soup out of them? I know, I just found out yesterday.

here's the link to the video recipe:

Looks good! Never thought to try baby pumpkins.

I use amazing bouillon cubes from Edwards & Sons but they also make curry bouillon cubes and I can image it being really delicious using those!

I haven't viewed the video (it wouldn't work for me), but I can say that I use young pumpkins for stir fry, soups, and stews. Just about any winter squash when picked early is fine in stir fries.

Bert, I grow/trade/forage/hunt 90% of our food. It would be closer to 99% but we like to splurge on the weekends and eat out a breakfast and dinner. Since I really need to feed ourselves from the gardens, I've learned to eat plenty that I wasn't raised to. Things like baby pumpkins & squash, sweet potato vine tips, assorted "weeds", inner broccoli stalks, broccoli leaves, that sort of thing. I'll use the tougher leaves and stalks of cabbage and plenty of others, onion/leek skins and leaves, veggie rinds, etc for making stock. What people throw into their compost piles, we have the tendency to eat ... or feed it to livestock.

People should try those baby pumpkins. It's fun to experiment with new foods. We often aren't thrilled when we first try new stuff, but it grows on you. We now really want pumpkin in stir fry and stews.

That's a great way of living. It's always been that way, people nowadays get spooked if you say that they used to eat pig brains and such.. while there is nothing wrong with it. I adore the way you use everything that other people discard.. my respect.
 
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars. Tiny ad:
