This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he always thought the garden was his. Even though I do all the work, he always stood by me. I'm located near Boston (in USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot and a backyard vegetable garden. I use sustainable organic methods and try to grow all of my family's vegetables.

"my" pumpkin soup recipe

My favorite pumpkin soup recipe is from a little book: Holiday Pumpkins by Georgeanne Brennan and Jennifer Barry. A very cute book with a bunch of nice pumpkiny ideas. But the soup is exceptional. Nice and simple: pumpkin, leeks and ginger. Optional cilantro and cream garnish. I made it for Thanksgiving a while back and served it in the pumpkin shell. I'm planning to do the same again this year.

Not wanting to copy a book recipe onto my blog, I searched online for someone else who has a similar recipe. Here's the exact recipe at, but using sour cream instead of creme fraiche. Both neglect to mention that you should puree the soup after cooking the pumpkin.

There are also some lovely caribbean pumpkin soup traditions, mostly in Jamaica, and warmed up with Scotch Bonnet chillis! Phew!

Thanks a lot for the link with recipe. I love meals from pumpkin a lot and I try to persuade my wife to make them more often. One of my most favorite meals is the pumpkin pie from my grandmother. However, despite the fact that Thanksgiving in Canada was few weeks ago I believe that my wife will make this soup soon.

Good luck,

How are things going with the pirate site?

I ran across the following when I was roaming around the web, dunno if it will help:

"you can always run an RSS footer plugin with a copyright notice and a link back to your blog. That way, it also lets Google know it's your content, and not the scraper's."

I looked at his site, and he does have your pumpkin soup entry but it's empty of content.

Thank you Karen Anne. I will try this. I have go to a short RSS feed, which is not so nice for readers as they get no photos.
