Baked Whole Pumpkin
December 06, 2005

Gorgeous! Finished cooking in microwave as pumpkin was cooked but custard not set! It was however gorgeous, the custard did not look grey as I grated my nutmeg myself instead of using ready grinded one which may be responsible for the grey custard some had. Pumpkin started to slpit as it had to cook so much more for custard to set so I presented it with a pretty sash tied round it an no one noticed the problem. I will in future start cooking the custard in a pan and put semi-set in pumpkin. Also I recommand cooking the lid separately, upside down on the baking sheet as it seems partly responsible for custard taking so long to set. On the whole I strongly recommand this recipe, it was a hit here in France and dinners ate the whole lot!
