Welcome to The Pauley Principle!

The Pauli Principle, named for Wolfgang Pauli, deals with atoms and electron-sharing that results in new, stronger bonds. Think 2 parts hydrogen and 1 part oxygen, a shared delectable (!) electron and VOILA! Water!

Similarly, when you prepare whole food to share with family and friends, especially foods you've grown, something amazing happens. Meals become tastier and healthier. Your soul, not just your stomach, becomes fulfilled. You live life more abundantly as a result. During a shared meal, the bonds that people create grow stronger and become something new: GREATER than the sum of the parts! I give you The Pauley Principle.

How to Make Pumpkin Puree

The best things in life are messy. Making your own pumpkin puree is no exception. What makes it so worth it is the fresh full flavor you'll get when you bake with it!

Start with a perfectly good pumpkin. It doesn't have to be large. Even this small one to the right had 2 cups of pulp. Cut your pumpkin in half. Get ready to get messy if you do this or just use a large spoon. Either way, remove the seeds. Then, place your pumpkin cut-side-down in a large pan. Fill halfway up the pumpkin with water and bake at 400 degrees F for about 45 minutes. Allow to cool before scooping the pulp into a blender. Simply puree the pulp until smooth. Then you're ready to use the puree in your favorite pumpkin recipes!
