Yankee Gardener's Halloween Pumpkin Flan

Serves 6-8



1 pound cooked pumpkin, mashed
or 1 can prepared pumpkin (Your favorite Brand)
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
4 fresh eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt (Plain or Iodized)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
3/4 teaspoon powdered ginger
1 12-ounce can evaporated milk (Your favorite Brand)

To cook raw pumpkin: Wash the outside, and cut off the top. Remove all the pumpkin seeds. Peel it and cut into 2-inch cubes. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add 1 teaspoon salt and the cubed pumpkin. Bring back to a boil, reduce heat and cook for 10-12 minutes. Drain well. Mash until texture is smooth. Follow recipe.

Place one cup sugar in a small, heavy skillet and stir over medium heat until melted and caramelized. Immediately pour into the bottom of a spring-form pan. Spread evenly across bottom of pan. Mix the remainder of 1/2 cup sugar, eggs, salt, vanilla, spices, cooked pumpkin, and milk into a mixing bowl. Pour into the baking pan. Place pan into another shallow pan with 1/2 inch of hot water in the bottom. Bake at 350° for 1 1/2 hours. Cool and refrigerate until ready to serve. To serve, invert onto a serving plate. This is a special fall treat, especially when made with home grown pumpkins from your special pumpkin patch.

Taste of Gloucester Cook Book The Taste of Gloucester - A Fisherman's Wife Cooks - 8th Edition
"The Taste of Gloucester" cookbook was created by the Gloucester Fishermen's Wives and the Cape Ann League of Women's Voters to share recipes of lesser known species of fish as well as familiar ones. Their cookbook, The Taste of Gloucester has sold over 200,000 copies. The Taste of Gloucester recipes are drawn from tradition and are variations of ethnic specialties for different occasions. The original purpose of the cookbook was the promotion of underutilized fish to help the local fleet diversify. Squid, Atlantic Herring and Shark recipes are scattered among those for more familiar species. Copies of The Taste of Gloucester - 8th Edition, can be ordered through the Yankee Grocery Country Store.
