Just in time for Thanksgiving- we invite you to join us at the Hillcrest Farmers Market, where you will find a bountiful selection of fruits and veggies for your Thanksgiving feast! And because we know there is no other autumn dessert that is so definitive for the season as much as a classic pumpkin pie, we’re sharing a classic, farm to table recipe!
I hope you enjoy this season of gratitude and of the heart, with your family. Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at the Hillcrest Business Association and the Hillcrest Farmers Market!
– Eddie Rey, Marketing & Member Services Director, Hillcrest Business Association.
Farm To Table Classic Pumpkin Pie
1 medium pumpkin from the Hillcrest Farmers Market
Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)
2 Hilliker’s Ranch Fresh Eggs from the Hillcrest Farmers Market
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 cup 2% milk
Cut pumpkin in half lengthwise; discard seeds. Place cut side down on a rimmed baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Rub canola oil all over the skin and bake until fork tender, about 1 hour.
Meanwhile, roll out pastry to fit a 9-in. pie plate. Transfer pastry to pie plate. Trim pastry to 1/2 in. beyond the edge of plate; flute edges. Set aside.
Drain pumpkin. When cool enough to handle, scoop out pulp and mash. Set aside 1-3/4 cups (save remaining pumpkin for another use).
In a large bowl, combine the mashed pumpkin, eggs, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, ginger, and cloves; beat until smooth. Gradually beat in milk. Pour into crust.
Bake at 425° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°; bake 40-45 minutes longer or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cover edges with foil during the last 30 minutes to prevent over-browning if necessary. Cool on a wire rack. Refrigerate leftovers.
Next time you’re in town or your family comes to visit, take a walk off the beaten path and spend the day in Hillcrest. Be sure to make time for the Hillcrest Farmers Market for some great food, beautiful flowers, and fresh produce!
