"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain
I use fresh pumpkin---cook and strain pumpkin 2/3 cup shortening 2 2/3 cup sugar Cream together. Add: 4 eggs 2 cups fresh pumpkin 2/3 cup water Sift in: 3 1/3 cups flour 2 tsp. baking soda 1 1/2 tsp. salt 1/2 tsp. baking powder 2 tsp. pumpkin spice Add: 2/3 cups chopped nuts 2/3 cups raisins
Bake at 350 for 65-75 minutes in lightly greased loaf pans Divide batter between 2 loaf pans.
I got this recipe from Barbara Stanley, a neighbor in Fort Valley, Va. It is well worth the time to use fresh pumpkin. It is very delicious and makes wonderful Christmas gifts for neighbors and friends.
