This stuff is pretty amazing. And actually, fairly easy. It’s not much more than roasting and pureeing some pumpkin, seasoning and sprinkling on some garnishes. It’s so pretty and sooooo tasty.

This post is two years in the making. I took this pic two years ago, but didn’t end up posting this recipe until today when my friend, Libby, asked me for a refrigerator pickle recipe. This is a very vinegary recipe. If that’s not your thang, swap out one cup of vinegar for a cup […]
