Pumpkin Fritters of Deliciousness

Pumpkin banner

I know that Halloween was almost a week ago, so you probably don’t have any pumpin flesh scooped from Jack-O-Lanterns left sitting in the fridge. But if you did, this would be a very helpful blog-post.
Just in case you have pumpkins all over the place despirate to be eaten, this 10-minute recipe for pumpkin fritters is a special gift for you.

Ingredients: (enough for 3 – 4 people)
2 cups cooked pumpkin (mashed)
1 egg
1/2 cup of flour
a pinch of salt
1 heaped tablespoon of sugar


Pour enough vegetable oil into a frying pan to cover the base. Heat it up ’til almost sizzling.

Beat all the ingredients together to make a soft batter.

Scoop spoonfuls of batter into the pan (beware of splashing oil, or doom might occur) and fry on both sides until lightly browned.

Dry on paper and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

Serve warm.

Tasty tasty tasty tasty.


P.S. The jack-o-lantern on the top of this post was made from a Lightning Squash which was only 8cm in diameter. Here’s a photo where the size is more obvious (I think this would make a good cover for a children’s book):


A Letter for You

Dear Reader,

Thank you for visiting. I hope this blog-post finds you well.

If you are interested in crafts, food, and DIY, this blog should be one of your best friends (not your absolute best-friend though, because that would be weird and you should probably try meet new people).

I am a jeweller and silversmith, but every now and then I make something wonderful that has nothing to do with jewellery or silver. I therefore decided to document and share these things with you so that you can make something wonderful too. You do want to make something wonderful, don’t you? Well now, at long last, you can.

Be encouraged.
Add something beautiful to the world.
And other airy-fairy phrases.

Warm regards,
