Halloween and Pumpkin Recipes - Bread

The trees are beautiful around us right now, quickly changing their colors due to the cold weather we're having early in the fall season, and the pumpkins are excellent in New Jersey in spite of the rainy summer we've had. I guess they, like the melons we've purchased this summer, have been happy with all the rain.

When my children were growing up, we would go pumpkin picking, and used most of the pumpkin. We prepared it a day before Halloween; removing,cleaning and roasting the pumpkin seeds for eating. Then we carved a face into the pumpkin, and set it out with a candle to enjoy on Halloween night. Before it could decay, or the animals could get to it, I cut it up into pieces that could be used in recipes. I had (and still have) a ceramic pumpkin that replaced the "real" pumpkin before and after Halloween night.

There are many things you can use pumpkin for, pumpkin soup, pumpkin pie and more...we'll take a look at some over the holiday season.

I enjoyed looking at the following video on how to make no-knead pumpkin bread, and maybe you will too!
