In the background you will see the electric fence set up on the "long paddock" (roadside) as they say. It is a good way of mowing the verges as well as feeding hungry cows before the grass starts growing again. We have had good rain now so I will take it down today.
Ulf's prime pumpkin soup
1 good pumpkin. Queensland blue is best but any rich pumpkin will do.
2-3 tablespoons of good honey
2 lemons or limes
Cream, 1 cup or more
Cayenne pepper or hot Paprika to taste
Boil the cleaned pumpkin flesh until it is just soft then drain. Mash or blend until smooth and add cream to form a thick soup. Add honey until reasonably sweet then sharpen with lemon/lime juice to taste. Stir in Cayenne pepper a little at a time (be careful here as honey can amplify the effect of hot spices!) until the soup has a nice bite. Blend till smooth.
Serve hot with a small dollop of cream on top and toasted crusty bread to the side.
