Pumpkin Juice

This afternoon, I came inside from doing yard work and poured myself a big glass of pumpkin juice.  Not the Harry Potter kind,  but the actual juice of a pumpkin.  It was quite tasty.

The backstory: On Thursday I made a batch of pumpkin puree.  I like my puree thick, so when it was done I dumped it into a coffee-filter lined colander to drain for several hours. I poured the resulting six cups of liquid into three containers. Two containers went into the downstairs freezer to use for cooking. I got busy and put the last one in the refrigerator, telling myself I'd get around to taking it down later.

Now that I finished off the container I don't have to worry about it.

    1. In the middle of an unhealthy diet day that might have been the best thing I consumed.

  5. I have never ever bought a real pumpkin. I am currently in love with a pumpkin black bean soup but I used canned pumpkin puree. Hmmm to the pumpkin juice. I'm curious.

    1. No pumpkins for eating, or no pumpkins for jack-o-lanterns too?

    It is interesting to know that you drank pumpkin juice. I have never tasted it till now. I should now try it.

    1. I'll eat the seeds, but they're never as good as the pipitas I buy at the store.
