  1. Can see that now they have an abundance of pumpkins in Germany (many thanks by the way for getting back to me about where you live!). When we left W-Eur. in the 80-ties for the USA, they were nowhere to be found in Holland!
    Pumpkin has a specific taste, especially with the spices of cinnamon or nutmeg, that I love pumpkin the most in pumpkin desserts. (like pie or bread). Never tire of this subject for ALL SEASONS – so thank you much!
    Have a great week:)
