1 can pumpkin (10 oz)
1 1/2 cups sugar
Pumpking is an obvious choice for Samhain. Cranberries provide safety.

2/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup milk
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoonds grated orange peel
3 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup cranberries, chopped
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup raisins (optional)

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease the bottom of a 9x5x3 inch loaf pan. Beat the pumpkin, sugar, oil, milk, eggs, vanilla, and orange peel in a large bowl using an electic mixer. Mix the flour, baking powder, bakind soda, and salt ina small bowl. Stir the ingredients into the liquid. Fold in the cranberries, nuts, and raisins. Pout into the loaf pan. Bake until a knife inserted near the middle comes out clean, about 60 minutes. Cool before serving.

Thanks for posting that.
Yesterday I saw loads of massive pumpkins in the stores. I've got to buy one as I love pumkin soup. I used to have a great recipe for that - but currently can't find it

mmmm. Amer that sounds delish...

I found a Pumpkin Soup recipe. I haven't tried it yet, but I waded through a bunch of them and this one sounds the yummiest If anyone makes it, let me know how it came out...

Pumpkin Soup
1/2 c Onions
3 tb Butter
2 c Mashed cooked pumpkin
1 ts Salt
1 tb Sugar
1/4 ts Nutmeg
1/4 ts Ground pepper
3 c Chicken broth
1/2 c Light cream


Chop the onions and gently brown in the butter in a pan or kettle. Put mashed pumpkin into onions in pan with the salt, sugar, nutmeg and pepper. Slowly add chicken broth and heat thoroughly, but do not boil. To serve, pour into a tureen and add the cream. Makes 4 to 6 small servings.

Oh, I know what you mean. There's something about the crisp fall air that makes me just crave pumpkin and squash and a nice beef stew with fresh baked bread. mmmmmm. Oh, sorry - it's past my dinner time

Molly Katzen (formerly one of the Moosewood Restaurant people) suggests an amazing Pumpkin Tureen soup -- you prepare the broth/soup beforehand, place inside a whole, cleaned pumpkin, bake it, then serve the whole thing at the table! Baking it with the broth softens the pumpkin's insides, which you can scoop out to serve in bowls of soup! Yummy, yummy. I've made it a couple times.

The only other details I recall are that one is supposed to clean out the pumpkin first (duh!), oil the outsides, make sure it's in a good pan in case it springs a leak during baking, don't use a creamed soup -- broth is recommended, and it takes a good couple hours or more to bake.

Pretty sure you can find it in the Enchanted Broccoli Forest Cookbook.

Enjoy!
