  1. Cut a pumpkin into thin slices, and boil until tender in as little water as possible, watching carefully that it does not scorch; set the stew-kettle on top of stove, mash the pumpkin fine, heaping it against the sides of the kettle so that the water may drain from it and dry away; repeat this process until the water has all evaporated, and the pumpkin is quite dry. This will require from half an hour to an hour. Mash and rub through a sieve, adding, while warm, a good-sized lump of butter; to every quart of pumpkin, after it is mashed, add two quarts of milk and six eggs, the yolks and whites beaten separately, sugar to taste, one tea-spoon salt, table-spoon ground cinnamon, one grated nutmeg, tea-spoon ginger; bake in a hot oven until well set and a nice brown. It is as well to heat the batter scalding hot, stirring constantly until it is poured into the pie-dishes. on 10 Oct 2008 at 8:45 pm 1 k what do you cut the pumpkin with and how thin do you cut throught. as you see i know nothing how to do it on 10 Oct 2008 at 8:47 pm 2 k and sorry i forgot what does 1 large sum of butter mean, can you help with the cup amount also what is one quart mean in cups or lbs? on 13 Oct 2008 at 11:41 am 3 admin Cut the pumpkin in half with a big, heavy knife.
