Pumpkins are a very important part of the diet here in Jamaica. I love pumpkin soup and pumpkin rice and lots of other dishes...they don't have canned pumpkin much so I have learned how to make my own - it isn't hard and it is so good for us. The pumpkins are not orange like we are used to ..they are green and white striped or motted. Here is a whole pumpkin at the market - they have all shapes and sizes - they cut off how many pounds you want to purchase...note the half pumpkin. The inside is orange! Here are the sisters with their Trick or Treat from us! Last Halloween it was elders in Ocho Rios, this year it is sisters in Junction...missions are fun!
