A Sincere Pumpkin Patch
I spent the first few days of yontif on the Chocolate Family’s ancestral farm visiting the Glaistig and the Wee’an. During moyed we went pumpkin picking at Soon’s Orchard, a beloved local landmark. The Wee’an selected this twenty-two pounder.
These orangey, decorative pumpkins are not usually my first choice, but I’ve cooked them, and they are just fine. Use the pumpkin of your fancy to make Pumpkin with cornbread stuffing or Pumpkin Koyletsh (Pumpkin Challah).
This is exactly the same candy display they had when the Glaistig and I were wee’ans ourselves. Well, not exactly; some of the flavors have changed. They used to have horehound. Soon’s was the first place I encountered horehound candy outside of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s books.More adventures on the road at Sweetnicks.
