Graham-a-palooza, or Mr. Proust Goes to Nursery School

I saw the first recipe below for Graham Muffins below in the public recipe feed on the ReciFoto app this morning, which led me to do a search on Graham on today.  When I was in nursery school, they would wake you up from nap time by placing a graham cracker on your tummy. As a result, I’ve always had a warm spot in my heart for graham crackers and that graham flavor. Perhaps the graham cracker is my petite madeleine, the cookie that set into motion Proust’s Remembrance of Things Past.

I’m a little confused by some of the recipes below because they are called graham this or that, but the recipe calls for whole wheat flour. Maybe someone reading this post can clarify that for me.

Here are the recipes resulting from my search, including the “whole wheat graham” recipes:

The Great Pumpkin

Once again, I was all set to do a newsletter on salmon, but then I realized that Halloween is upon us, and it might be fun to do something a little more seasonal like pumpkins. If like me, you are of a certain age, you watched It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown every year. So, in the spirit of Linus Van Pelt, I’ve picked the pumpkin recipes that are the most sincere, and perhaps you will feel the spirit of the Great Pumpkin rise out of your finished product.

It is very easy to buy and use canned pumpkin, but if you wanted to prepare your own here’s what you do: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, Cut the whole pumpkin into small pieces. I’ve seen people use a grapefruit spoon to cut away the seeds and pith (the non-meaty part). Put the pumpkin skin side up in a large roasting pan and add a 1/4 inch of water to the bottom of the pan. Bake it until tender, which should take about an hour. After it has cooled, cut away the skin and take a potato masher and mash it, or throw it in a food processor or blender and puree it. Whether you use canned or fresh pumpkin, we hope you’ll be inspired to go beyond pumpkin spice lattes!
