  • Those memories of aromas definitely struck home Chef. I did not grow up in town but when I was there visiting friends I would pick all kinds of cooking wafting from the homes. Usually I had to be home for supper but occasionally I got to eat at someone's house to see just what foods those aromas were connected.

    Roast pumpkin or squash sounds really great and I have never done it. A you know, I will have a little on which to practice. Need to bring in some today as a matter of fact.

  • roast pumpkin with cardamom, oregano, cinnamon, or brown sugared brandy splashed on it is rather good....very easy on the cardamom it can be extremely over powering...best to mix it with something...savory pumpkin I really like!

  • We lived in the Tri-Cities for a year when I was nine years old, and our family still has some close friends up there. The church they attend (and that we attended) makes apple butter twice a year as a huge fund-raiser. They take over the whole kitchen and fellowship hall, and it takes lots of volunteers, but they make jars and jars and jars of apple butter to sell.

  • Well it's good stuff...I'll be making some soon, the old fashion way though...on the stove on low for hours, until its just right...then I'll can it...

    I sure need an apple peeler...it takes a lot of peeled apples...and peeling them with a paring knife takes awhile and can waste a lot of the apple...I use to have one of those vised to the table twisting ones.

  • Anyone with damaged or apples of any kind they would care to bring to the meetings? My horses would "neigh" with delight! hp
