At my regular market we have the best chef, Honey Child, and she makes the most delicious food. Being of a very multi national hertiage, but in essence an American, she cooks us the most awesome food from all over. I could go on an on about her food, there are so many words that all mean ‘just fantastic grub’.
Today’s menu was Thanksgiving complete with Pumpkin Pie. As I was going to a different market, I asked for a piece to be put aside and I am not at all unhappy about it.
In the southern hemisphere, or at least here in Australia, pumpkin is a vegetable that you have on your plate with other veges,(like with roast meat) or in soup, maybe scones, yum (Thanks Flo), and pie’s are for fruits, custard or meat. Eating pumpkin for dessert is just wrong!
Pumpkin. In a pie. It’s a weird sensation. It’s sweet and spicy, thanks to the brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger, but there’s the underlying savoury pumpkin-as-a-vegetable flavour. Like I said, weird, but strangley delicious.
Have you had pumpkin pie, made it and what do you think??
Who says veges can’t be eaten as a fruit?
Tomato – fruit or veg?
Pie or tart – meat, fruit or veg?
