Potato Pumpkin

Linda Brulé, a wonderful viewer/subscriber and sage of culinary information was watching my recent video, where I mentioned Potato and Pumpkin, it had her thinking about an article she had read describing a Recipe for “Potato Pumpkin” an old time recipe for Forced Pumpkin. I will leave a link to the full article here, it’s a fascinating read.

Thank you Linda.

 Pumpkin Spice Latte

We talked about my Recipe so I thought I’d better leave a link to it.


Burning Butter

We talked briefly about the smoke point at which butter starts to burn and become bitter. It was in fact between 121C to 149C or 250F to 300F depending on the fat content.

Ghee or clarified butter is better to cook with and has a Smoke point of 252C or 285F

All the best Steve
