One thing I genuinely miss about autumn in America is the presence of pumpkins everywhere. Pumpkin patches, picking pumpkins, roasting pumpkin seeds, carving them…and of course pumpkin bread and pie! Oddly enough I’m not that big a fan of pumpkin spiced lattes—one or two sips is plenty for me, otherwise it’s far too sugary. But in Scotland, there aren’t really pumpkin patches to visit. You can buy pumpkins (or turnips!) from supermarkets to carve, but it just doesn’t have that same charm as competing with your friends or significant others to find the best carving pumpkin! So I did what any normal person would do, and ordered a large parcel three tins of pumpkin purée to satisfy my hankering to bake pumpkin everything.
