It's that time of year again- time to try out some recipes for pumpkin pie! Our favorite is loaded with honey, and we return to it each year because it never disappoints.
2 cups pumpkin puree
3/4 cup honey
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 9" single crust pie
Directions: Beat eggs slightly in a large bowl. Blend in pumpkin, milk, cream, honey, spices, and salt. Pour the filling into the pie shell. Cover edges of shell with strips of foil. Bake at 400 degrees F for 35 minutes. Remove foil, then continue to bake for 15 more minutes. An inserted knife will come out clean when done. Cool and serve.
I highly recommend finishing it with some freshly whipped cream!
And since we're on the topic of pumpkins, I'll share a few photos of some pumpkin highlights from the past few weeks.

Pictured Below: our annual pumpkin carving ritual. This year we actually got this done after Halloween. Better late than never, right?
We had a visit from Portsmouth Brewing Co. who picked up several buckets of our Summer honey for an upcoming Christmas Ale. They were kind enough to gift us some of the "Circleville Pumpkin Ale" which I had never tried before. Made with REAL locally grown pumpkins.
And now- to tell you about an upcoming event. We'll be participating in the annual "Holiday Fest" which will take place at the Circleville Golf Course (Country Club) this year. Check out the event webpage here for more details on location, hours, and other participating artists and crafters.
