(Pumpkin - Selection - 00) During the latter part of October, we saw pumpkins on sale for $2.50 each. We selected this 16 inch diameter pumpkin for decoration. It would also end up feeding us for several days. When we picked out this pumpkin, we made sure that it was free of bruises, cuts and punctures. We just dusted off the loose dirt and set it on display. It is best not to wash a pumpkin that will be sitting around for a while, as it seems to promote more rapid rotting. This particular pumpkin lasted until Thanksgiving time at the end of November.
The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
