“I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.” – Henry David Thoreau
In this harvest season, we went looking for carved Jack-o-lantern pumpkin ideas and stumbled upon the ‘sweet pumpkin’ – the ‘Sugar Pie’ pumpkin. Just the thought of a sweeter choice and a place with more enjoyment on the inside gave us the thought — our small, four-bedroom Green Palm Inn is so much like the sweet pumpkin!
- Sweet Pumpkins* are grown for their edible sweet inside. They are sometimes called “Sugar Pie”, pie pumpkins or baking pumpkins. The plump and magical shape of cheese pumpkins (sweet and firm flesh, ideal for roasting), along with Rouge Vif d’Etampes pumpkins, called “Cinderella pumpkins” make these easy to imagine as suddenly springing into a fairytale carriage.
- Jack-o-lantern pumpkins are field pumpkins, grown for their bigger, hollow inside.
Below are a few easy pumpkin recipes that caught our eye —
- Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
- Pumpkin Pie Brioche and Dark Chocolate Croissants
- Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle Recipe
- Pumpkin Cranberry Scones
- Pumpkin Breakfast Cake
