I have been very busy trying out lots of ways to get through them.
We have steamed, boiled, baked and fried.
We have mashed, spiced, muffined and pancaked.
We have errmmmed, ahhhed, oooooed and ehhhh?ed.
They are incredibly watery.
You can get over that by cooking the water out of them.
But they are just very very bland. Tasteless even.
Such a pity.
The standout recipe so far has been pumpkin muffins made with rye flour and spiced pumpkin. For two cups of pureed pumpkin the spice mix is:
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger powder
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp nutmeg
They tasted amazing. That's a seriously good combination of spices.
The last word went to K:
"Wow. These are good. Imagine what they'd be like with pumpkin flavour as well."
Hmmmmm...... 32 to go....
