I have a beautiful little sugar pumpkin on my window. I *was* going to make pumpkin bread out of it. Then I started to wonder if you can juice a pumpkin and if so, what does it taste like? Do you get enough juice out of it to go thru all the trouble? I *would* experiment on my own-but i have only ONE of these preciouses and live more than 10 miles from the nearest store, so I'd rather not waste it!

no idea at all. it's kinda dry... but then so are beets and carrots and you get juice from them. sorry... you may have to sacrifice it to find out!

so - did you juice it?
Yesterday, I took a chunk of sugar pumpkin and homoginized it through the greenstar along with a few dates. I sprinkled some cinnamon on the mixture -- it tasted like pumpkin pie filling. Was good just like that as a "pudding" --- then took some of it and made little cookies. Dehydrated them for a day -- they were very tasty.
Haven't tried juicing pumpkin tho .... just curious to see if you tried it and what it tasted like. :)

If you want a "traditional" (read: cooked) pumpkin taste, I would recommend dehydrating it before you do anything with it, otherwise it is very starchy.

I juiced it yesterday. It was okay. I have used it before w/the dehydrator and made pumpkin bread last year. Juicing it was not too yummy. Well it didn't taste pumpkin-y. Just kinda "green".
