Lafayette Farmers Market Recipes

Pumpkin Pie Recipe
Lafayette Market Pumkin Artwork This makes a light sweet pie that tastes great served cold. Try it for breakfast if your mother will let you.

1 3/4 cup cooked
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
1tsp. cinnamon
3 eggs
1 1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Combine ingredients. Pour into a pie shell. Bake at 425 for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 and bake for additional 50-60 minutes or until filling doesn't jiggle.

quick tips...
Usually it's easiest to cut the pumpkin in half and scoop out the membranes and seeds. Then cut the halves into quarters and peel. Steam the pumpkin for about 20 to 30 minutes or until you can easily stick in a fork. Run through a food mill or food processor. Always use a pumkin advertised as a "pie pumpkin." Jack-O-Lantern pumkins make watery tasteless pies!

Persimmon Pudding Recipe
Lafayette Market Persimmons My mother-in-law tried many a persimmon pudding recipe until she settled on this one. It has a rich and buttery taste and a smooth texture. My kids always want the edge pieces (extra buttery and crisp).

2 cups persimmon pulp
2 cups sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 3/4 cups sifted flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 cup half-and-half
1 cup buttermilk
1 tsp. soda
1/3 cup melted butter
dash of cinnamon

Combine persimmon pulp, sugar, and eggs. Sift flour with baking powder; add to persimmon mixture alternating with a combination of the ream, butter milk and soda. Melt butter in baking pan and coat pan with the butter. Stir the remaining butterinto the persimmon mixture. Bake at 325 for 60 minutes in a 13 x 9 pan.

quick tip...
Persimmons are very sour until they fall from the tree. If you are lucky enough to have a persimmon tree, pick up the ripe fruits after they fall from the tree every day. Run them through a food mill and you'll have your own fresh pulp. Persimmons found in the stores are not acceptable as they are usually a different variety entirely. Use only Hoosier persimmons!
