Pie Pumpkin and Pumpkin Pie


Inside today’s box (Special Box December 8th) is a GIFT!  Appropriate this time of year 🙂 !  A New England Pie Pumpkin–Sugar Pie!  Just in time for Holiday Pumpkin Pie!

Go to Lloyd Craft Farms Facebook page for a video of how to make your pie with the sugar pumpkin in your box–

If you don’t have time or desire to watch a video, here’s the recipe:

Sugar Pie Pumpkin- roughly 3#

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Cut sugar pumpkin in half, scoop out seeds, rub oil all over the skin, place face down on cookie sheet, and bake 1 hour or until roasted through.  Let cool.

Make the crust or use a purchased pie crust.


1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 c. whipping cream
2 T. cornstarch
2 T. molasses
2 T. oil
1 T. ground cinnamon
1 t. ground ginger
3 large eggs

For the filling:  Scoop out the pulp from the roasted pumpkin and puree in a food processor until smooth (you should have about 4 cups).  Add the condensed milk, cream, cornstarch, molasses, oil, cinnamon, ginger, salt and eggs and combine thoroughly.

Pour the filling into the crust and bake until the filling is set in the center, about 1 hour.  Transfer the pie to a rack and cool for 30 minutes.  Serve at room temperature or chilled.


Enjoy!  The Farmer’s Wife
