I am fascinated by the 'bumpy' pumpkins that look like there are peanut shells growing all over them. They are actually called Peanut Pumpkins and have been in France since 1883. They were introduced to the United States commercially in 2010. The bumpy-looking skin appears on the surface of a seemingly regular pumpkin when sugar extrudes through the skin. It begins to crackle and form the peanut shell-like shapes even after the pumpkin has been harvested.
So, no Monday Recipe Post today but here is a video on how to use one of these Peanut Pumpkins. If you can't open the video you can look at it here.
I am supporting the following memes as they become available, with many thanks to all our hosts.
