We grow pumpkins every year and I always have some frozen in my freezer so I am always trying to figure out what to make. This recipe came about after I made my butternut squash soup. Happy Cooking.

1 lb

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Modern Method: In a large Dutch Oven (the type for stovetops) melt your butter and onion and gently cook until onion is translucent. Stirring frequently don't burn.
2

Note: My hubby added 1 cayanne pepper, chopped and sprinkled that on top too. It added a little heat but not much and was very yummy.
4
Hearth Method: Follow modern method but use a round bottom kettle with legs, hanging from a crane in a fireplace or fire irons over a fire pit and cook over a moderate fire.
