Tips, Notes, and Variations[edit]

  • Chopped walnuts, are particularly good in this bread, but your favorite nuts will do.
  • If cooking in a Dutch oven, preheat with about 14 charcoal briquettes, with about 10 or 11 on top and 3 or 4 on the bottom. If you're cooking outdoors, you'll have to use a hand mixer or a strong arm with the spoon.
  • If your bread sticks to the greased pan, try coating the greased pan with a thin layer of flour.
  • If you want to use fresh cooked pumpkin instead of canned pumpkin, follow these directions:
    • Cut the a small cooking/pie pumpkin into small section (that will fit into the pot you will use to cook them)
    • Bring water to a boil in a large pot (enough water so the none of the pumpkin slices will be sitting on the bottom of the pot)
    • Add pumpkin slices to the boiling water, cook approx. 15 minutes or until pumpkin is soft
    • Remove pumpkin slices from water
    • Using a knife or spoon, peel/cut away the skin
    • The pumpkin can be used right away for cooking, or can be refrigerated/frozen until needed
