The view from here

Cloudy and grey here today.  Just finished making a butterkin pie. Butterkins are a cross between pie pumpkins and butternut squash.
(I roasted the left over chunks of the one I used to make a casserole of pork, apples, squash and sweet onion last nights get. It was tasty!). Anyhow -   They have a very similar taste to pumpkin. (Actually the canned "pumpkin" you get in the store is more than likely a hybrid squash as well). If you have never made pumpkin pie from the real deal you are missing something delicious.  And chances are you'll never go back to the canned stuff...I'll take a picture when it comes out of the oven. :--)

Never heard of butterkins! I'm a big fan of butternut; great flavor and so easy to peel and de-seed. I don't even bother with pumpkins anymore....
