I just received a very beautiful 38 Lb cindrella pumpkin from the very prestigious Hendrickson Farm.

 These Hendrickson boys  can recognize a pumpkin winner if there ever was one !!

 These pumpkins are no hollow jack-o-lantrins . They are total meat, thru & thru!
 Grab a meat cleaver, chop into sections & toss into the pressure canner with 2 cups of water in the bottom for about 10 min. on 5 lbs pressure.
Run the softened pumpkin thru a foley grinder (food mill) and can it up.

I rendered 6 Qts from a 38 lb pumpkin.   (:>
