Linda's Story

This is a family favorite and was my Grandpop Henry's favorite pie!

FACTOID: Did you know that most commercial pumpkin for pumpkin pie - the kind you buy in a can - is butternut squash?

One Blue Hubbard is enough for two deep dish pies

Ingredients

2 1/2 c
hubbard squash, cooked and mashed
1/2 tsp
salt
2 1/2 c
milk
4 large
eggs
1 c
brown sugar
3 Tbsp
granulated sugar
2 tsp
cinnamon
1/2 tsp
ginger
1/2 tsp
nutmeg
1/2 tsp
ground cloves

Directions Step-By-Step

1
To prepare the Hubbard Squash:
Cut them in chunks, scrape out the seeds, and roast the pieces in the oven at 350F for 45 minutes or so. They'll be totally soft and you scrape the skin off to mash the remains.
2
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Put squash in a large bowl.
Beat in eggs with a rotary beater(hand beater)
Add rest of ingredients and blend well with rotary beater.
3
Pour into unbaked 10" deep dish pie shell.
Bake 55 minutes or until a silver knife inserted 1" from the edge comes out clean.
The center may still look soft but will set as it cools.

Judy it surprised me too when I found out that commercial pumpkin was mostly butternut squash.

Linda, I did not know that commercial pumpkin was butternut squash but I have baked and combined butternut in stripped pumpkins for pie for many years because the combination tastes so darn good. I bake mine face down and after they cool (the butternut) I just pick them up and gently squeeze as much juice as I can get out of them and then scrap the pulp from the skin. I hat the mess of a food mill and this method works well for me. Thanks. Judy Kaye

Hi Linda, When you process your squash do you press out the extra juice in a cheese cloth as you do pumpkin so you have a more solid mass?

Thanks,
Sass
