Juice to Heal me!! "Fall Tonic" and Pumpkin Pie
Yesterday after a week I got a prescription and I am juicing today in hopes a recovery. My favorite cure all is 3 or 4 carrots, a handful of parsley, a couple of stalks of celery, a half of a fresh beet and an apple or two. Today I threw in a big shiny bright plum....just because!! This is a cure all I use for anything that comes up be it illness, a new diet, or the blues!! It has always made me fell better. For today it is my "Fall Tonic"plus I have everything fresh and on hand. Also it really tastes G-r-e-a-t!!
My recipe follows:
1 unbaked 9" pie pastry in a deep dish
1 regular can of pumpkin
2 large eggs
1 C. sugar
1-1 1/4 C. cream
1 1/2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. cloves
1 t. ginger
1 t. vanilla
1/4 t. salt
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Beat the pumpkin and eggs together well with a large whisk. Combine all of the dry ingredients in a small bowl and stir them together. Add the sugar and spices to the pumpkin egg mixture and beat together well. Add the cream and continue whisking until well blended and add the vanilla and finish combining. Pour into the prepared pastry and bake in the center of the oven for 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350degrees F. and bake for 40-50 minutes longer until the filling is set. Serve with ice cream or whipped topping.
Note: Newer recipes ask for evaporated milk and you can use it as well.
