October Pumpkins

There still time to get pumpkins at Sauvie Island Farms.  We are open 9am-6pm each day except Sunday until Halloween.   There are lots of jack o lantern pumpkins in the field waiting to go home with you.
Also, it's not to late to get a cinderella and buttercup squash to bake and make into fresh pumpkin puree for pies, muffins, breads or even ice cream!!  The puree freezes nicely in zip lock bags.  After many requests, we are posting Cindy's pumpkin bread recipe.

Pumpkin Bread
3 c sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 t. salt
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t baking powder
1 t cloves
1 t nutmeg
2 c pumpkin
3 1/2 c flour
2 t soda
1 c walnuts
1/2 c buttermilk
chocolate chips

Thoroughly mix all ingredients together.  Place in 3 greased and dusted with flour, bread pans
and bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees.

Enjoy...and thanks to Cindy for sharing her recipe with us!
