    Pumpkin Roll

    3 eggs 1 tsp. lemon juice
    2/3 cup pumpkin (fresh or can), mashed 1 tsp. ginger powder
    2 tsp. cinnamon powder 1 cup granulated sugar 1 tsp. salt
    3/4 cup self-rising flour
    4/2 tsp. nutmeg

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and dust with flour a 17
    1/4 x 11 1/2 x 1 inch baking pan. In a medium mixing bowl,
    beat eggs for 5 minutes on medium speed. Add all other
    ingredients one at a time, in any order, mixing well after
    each addition, until entire mixture is creamy smooth. Pour
    into prepared pan and distribute batter evenly with a spoon
    and bake for 15 minutes. Dust a clean dish cloth with
    confectioners' sugar and turn cake out, while still warm,
    onto the prepared dish towel and roll up jelly roll fashion
    and allow cake to cool completely while rolled in the dish
    towel. After "roll" is cooled, unroll and *spread with
    filling listed below. Sprinkle filling with nuts then
    carefully roll back up without the towel, wrap "roll" in
    aluminum foil and refrigerate.


    3 oz. cream cheese, softened 2 Tbsp. margarine, softened 1
    cup confectioners' sugar 1 tsp. vanilla extract 1 cup
    chopped nuts

    Blend all ingredients, except nuts, well with electric
    mixer. Follow directions above to continue.

    Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

    2 cup pumpkin seeds
    5/4 cup lemon juice (fresh squeezed)
    6/4 Tbsp. salt

    Dilute the salt with the lemon juice; then, mix in the
    pumpkin seeds. Keep mixing together until all seeds are
    very wet and soaked. Place seeds in a glass bowl and put in
    the microwave on very high temperature for 4 minutes. Take
    out and stir them very well and place back in the microwave
    for another 2 minutes. Keep repeating for 2 minutes at a
    time, stirring in between until they are roasted (golden
    brown). Enjoy.

    Pumpkin Chutney

    3 1/4 cup fresh pumpkin meat, peeled, seeded and chunked 2
    cup ripe tomatoes, peeled and chopped 1 cup onions, peeled
    and sliced
    7/4 cup raisins 1 cup sugar 1 cup brown sugar 2 Tbsp. salt
    2 tsp. each ground ginger, black pepper, and allspice
    Pinch of ground cloves 2 cloves garlic, chopped 1 tsp.
    ground mace 2 1/2 cup cider vinegar

    Place all ingredients in a large, heavy saucepan and bring
    to a boil, stirring until all the sugar has dissolved.
    Reduce heat and cook very gently, stirring occasionally,
    until the chutney is thick. It will take about 4 hours,
    but do not overcook, or the pumpkin pieces will lose their
    shape. Pour the chutney into hot, sterilized jars and
    allow to cool, then seal. If not using in a few days,
    process in a water bathe for 20 minutes. (Place sealed
    jars on a rack so they do not touch. Set in a large pan of
    boiling water to cover by at least 1-2 inches; begin
    timing when water returns to a boil. Add more boiling
    water as needed during the processing period.) Makes 3-4
    pints. Refrigerate after opening.

    finely ground 1 lb. beef, lean and finely ground 1 large
    Spanish onion, finely chopped
    15/8 tsp. ground cloves
    16/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
    17/4 tsp. ground sage Salt and pepper to taste 1 to 1 1/2
    cup fresh mashed potatoes

    Cut a hat (or lid) in the top of pumpkin and clean all seeds
    out of the interior. Rinse out the interior and dry with a
    paper towel. Set pumpkin aside. Saute beef and pork slowly
    until cooked. Remove from the pan and drain the fat from the
    meat. Saute the onion in butter until golden. Add the meat
    and spices together and heat. Add enough mashed potatoes to
    meat mixture to hold it together, and place mixture in the
    pumpkin cavity. Place filled pumpkin in a pie pan with 1/4
    inch of water in the bottom of the pan. Bake in a preheated
    350 degree oven for approximately 45 minutes, or until the
    pumpkin sinks or contracts somewhat. A toothpick should come
    out clean when done.

    Note: Spices may be adjusted to taste, and allspice may be
    used as well.
