The best scents during the Autumn season are those coming from the kitchen in our home.  It isn’t truly leaf raking season until a homemade pumpkin pie is in the oven.  Some of the best pies I’ve ever had (and made) are from fresh ingredients.  A while back I got to join Master Food Preservationist Janet Cassidys’ in her kitchen for the CanningLive Pumpkin Edition event.  We had a blast streaming live video packed with how to make your own pumpkin pureed and so much more.  In this blog post I share the recipe she used to make pumpkin pie from the homemade pureed she made from fresh pumpkins grown in her home garden.
