                                                                                                                                                                                                  For the Love of Pumpkin!

Here at the SandBar Photography, it’s not just family and children portraits this time of year that we love, but we have a passion for all things pumpkin, and especially this time of year.

Now although I am a children and family photographer I do have two other photographic passions one is with horses and the other is food. Well to be more accurate I love cooking and making food maybe a bit more than actually photographing it.

Sandy is a better newborn photographer and high school senior photographer than she is a cook!  She’s one of my dearest friends but she needs a bit of help in cooking department, She asked for this recipe so I thought I would share and find something to blog about as well. I use this recipe  for my pumpkin pie as we avoid the white sugar and replace it with a unprocessed ingredient honey.

first of all I start with FRESH PIE PUMPKINS

they are small.

I then cut them in half , take seeds out ( these can be baked as well for a nutritious snack )

and bake  your pumpkin halves  on 350 degrees for about an hour or until fork tender.

Let pumpkins cool down , then puree the pumpkin in my handy dandy ninja blender.

                                                                                           I then freeze enough for 2 pies ( 1 1/2 cup for each pie)  in a quart freezer bag, date and label and freeze to last me thru the holidays.
