Fall Harvest Treats


I spent yesterday afternoon multi-tasking between a series of deadlines and making fall treats: pumpkin pie, and green tomato chutney. The chutney recipe can be found on page 154 of the You Grow Girl book. Since the oven was blazing, I also threw in an assortment of tomatoes for roasting, and an over-sized zucchini.

My spouse Davin took over late afternoon, making the pie crust and assembling the pie since I have complained umpteen times that I am always stuck with the task. Of course he had to go all out and raise the bar on pie presentation by shaping and assembling the top crust by hand. Until this point, cutting leaves with a cookie cutter and slapping them on top has been considered above standard.

  1. Ha! Yes. I bought the pumpkin a few weeks ago at the market. I had to get on making the chutney because I had so many green tomatoes sitting around. I make it sound like a hardship but it’s all very tasty and good.
