One of the greatest Thanksgiving foods of all time is Pumpkin Pie, it is the perfect ending bite for your Thanksgiving feast. Pumpkin pie consists of a variety of spices and a beautiful crumbly crust. Pumpkin pie has a long history. The Native Americans brought pumpkins as gifts to the first settlers and taught them the many uses for pumpkin. This led to serving pumpkin pie at the first Thanksgiving in America about 50 years later. A really cool fun fact is that the biggest pumpkin pie was made right here, on September 25, 2010, in New Bremen, Ohio, at the New Bremen Pumpkinfest. The pie consisted of 1,212 pounds of canned pumpkin, 109 gallons of evaporated milk, 2,796 eggs, 7 pounds of salt, 14.5 pounds of cinnamon, and 525 pounds of sugar. The final pie weighed 3,699 pounds and measured 20 feet in diameter. That is quite the accomplishment.
Here is a great recipe for a delicious pumpkin pie, worth making!
