Making a Pumpkin Cookbook

This would make a great family or homeschool project. You would first need to do some online research about the elements you would like  added to the cookbook. Some suggestions are:

table of contents

this for that information

measurement information

information on the different types of pumpkin

information on making homemade pumpkin puree, by baking or boiling

information on freezing pumpkin, or the finished recipes

how to store roasted pumpkin seeds


You may also want to add a photograph of finished recipes, or of your children making each recipe.  A nice two-page spread would be the recipe and picture on one page, and a journaled story about making or eating the dish on the next page.

You may also want to make this book in the shape of a pumpkin for something fun to do.

You will want to use only your favorite holiday/harvest pumpkin recipes, so you will have to try them all out first. This can be a lot of fun. You will also want to make sure that you now how to prepare relevant recipes for the freezer.

Here are some pumpkin recipe ideas:

soups, and soups served in hollowed out pumpkins
