Witches Brew in Pumpkin Bowl

Pat Duran


First find a nice round pumpkin,(about 8-10 pounds big enough to holdd 25 cups liquid)) make a large opening on the stem end. Scoop out the insides with the seeds and all(save the seeds for later recipe).Place a large glass bowl inside cleaned out pumpkin or line the inside of the pumpkin with foil and crimp it all around the top. This pumpkin becomes your punch bowl. Take a black felt pen and write on the side "Witches Brew".
