While growing up on a farm, the harvest season was always a busy, yet productive time. Having harvested crops in the bins or at the elevator meant another farming season had come and gone. The cold winter months were for rest and a time to gear up for the next spring planting season.
The growing season also meant that we had plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, not to mention plenty of pecans and walnuts! Every spring Mom would always plant several hills of Connecticut Field pumpkin seeds and taught me how to make Fried Pumpkin Blossoms. My whole family LOVES fried pumpkin blossoms because they taste almost identical to fried wild morel mushrooms!
Pumpkin is great in many recipes such as Simple Pumpkin Muffins, Pumpkin-Chai Cheesecake with Caramel-Rum Sauce, or even in a Pumpkin Pie Smoothie!

This pumpkin bundt cake recipe can easily be modified to be gluten-free. Therefore it is a splendid option for anyone on a gluten-free diet. The cake is just a little denser than when using wheat flour, although no one will probably ever be able to tell the difference.
