Hi, I hope some one can help me, I have planted pie pumpkins to make our own pumpkin pie batter, but not sure how to go about it, I was hopeing that someone can help me. Also I want to can green beans but do not have a pressure cooker and want to do it on the stove top how long do I leave it the boiling water? Thanks for your help

Pumpkin pie is easy. You just clean out the pumpkin like it was Halloween, then cut it up into pieces that will fit into a boiling pot. Boil however much you are going to use for about 20 minutes, until a fork goes easily through it. Let it cool and cut away the peel. Use the pumpkin and follow the Betty Crocker recipe. Winter squash works just the same. The spices make the pie, pumpkin or squash is just filler. I just made some squash bread the same way from a big ole winter squash. Yummy.

If you don't have a Betty Crocker cookbook, get one. It's survival in the kitchen for me! But I will also copy the recipe for you if you need it.

By the way, you said you were using pie pumpkins so this doesn't apply to you, but if anyone is contemplating using Jack O Lanterns or other big ornamental pumpkins, many of them are really stringy when you boil them. Suggest you not use them in these recipes. Will taste ok, but will be noticably wierd in texture (been there, done that).

I don't know about pie batter but here goes on the green beans.

You just need to bring the water up to boil a minute or 2 with the jars of beans already in it. Ma Burr uses a 2 minit timer to buzz me when to pullum.
