If it’s September, it must be pumpkin time. Before the pumpkin spice lattes and muffins of today, people were eating dishes made from Connecticut Field and Long Island Cheese pumpkins. It was a dependable crop and stored well over the colder months providing a reliable source of food. Come and meet the workhorse of the colonial kitchen – the pumpkin. Our hearth cooks will be making a variety of dishes using heirloom pumpkins and old recipes using this staple of the fall menu.
