THE PILGRIM FATHER'S ORIGINAL PUMPKIN PIE - NORFOLK MILLION PIE

Jan 12, 2009



The Pilgrim Father's Original Pumpkin Pie - Norfolk Million Pie image

This is a very old English pumpkin pie recipe from Norfolk in East Anglia; it would have been known as Norfolk million pie - million being the old English word for a melon, marrow, pumpkin or any kind of gourd or squash. Please note, this is not the same as most of the modern North American pumpkin pie recipes, but is based on the original recipe from the 15th/16th century. As many of the Pilgrim Father's originated from East Anglia, this recipe undoubtedly crossed the Atlantic with them, and was probably served at their Thanksgiving dinner for the first harvest in the New World - pumpkins being in abundance there! You can use marrow or squash in this pie if you wish, it works just as well as it would have done in the 15th/16th Century! Please note, this recipe uses fresh pumpkin.
