Ag Fact of the Week #7

BOO!!!  Happy Halloween everyone! Did I scare you?  Well if not then this Ag Fact of the Week surely will!  Ever wonder about pumpkin pie?

In early colonial times, pumpkins where actually used as the crust for pies, not the filling.  The pumpkin shell was filled with milk, spices and honey and baked over hot ashes.

I wonder how we got to pumpkin as the filling of the pie!

Have a wonderful Halloween!

Spread it!!
