Cooking with My Wood Cook Stove – Pioneer Pumpkin Pie from Scratch: 1/4

I am making a 4 part mini video series and therefore I am making a 4 part mini blog series: Cooking with My Wood Cook Stove – Pioneer Pumpkin Pie from Scratch: 1/4

This is part #1. In this series.  In my videos, I am going to show you how to totally make a pumpkin pie from scratch. You will see how to make your own pumpkin puree from a sugar pumpkin to use in your pumpkin pie filling, make your own pie crust, make your own pumpkin pie filling and use your own spices, all the while seeing how I use my wood cook stove to cook my pumpkin pie! How fun is that? Let’s get started!

In part 1, I show how to prep the wood cook stove for baking and show how to start cooking your sugar pumpkin to be able to make your pumpkin puree. How fun!, Fun!!, FUN!!!

A sneak peek for our bloggers!  In Part 2 of my series you will see how to make a pie crust from scratch.  How Fun is that!

Behind the scenes As I was making this video, I noticed that it was very long, almost 29 minutes.  Most people will not sit through a YouTube video that long, my husband had the idea of cutting the video into pieces and then releasing the different parts just days apart.  What a fun idea I thought.  As I was writing, I thought that it would be fun to call this my 4 part mini series.

Also what you do not see in the videos is the fact that my kitchen became very warm and I had to open my windows.  This is because I baked by pumpkin for the puree and then had to keep the stove hot for the pumpkin pie.  I typically do not do both of these tasks all at one time.  I usually make the puree one day and then make the pie on another day.  The puree will last in your fridge for up to a week.

I hope you enjoy my 4 part mini blog and video series: Cooking with my Wood Cook Stove – Pioneer Pumpkin Pie from Scratch:1/4

One thought on “Cooking with My Wood Cook Stove – Pioneer Pumpkin Pie from Scratch: 1/4

  1. I never grow pumpkins as they are a bit bland and watery. Try steaming chunks of buttercup squash,then peel and mash well or puree. Use in your pie recipe.
    Freeze any cooked squash for easy future pies or baking. Or add to almost any recipe.
    Looking fwd. to your mini series. Great idea!
