I make several fresh pumpkin pies every fall. We usually have a good crop of pie pumpkins. I was surprised how long I had to look for a pie recipe using real pumpkin. It seems Americans prefer everything in a can :(
There are plenty of apple orchards near by to go apple picking. Fill up your baskets with Minnesota's own Honeycrisps at Ecker's Apple Farm in Trempealeau, WI, Ferguson's Orchard in Lake City or Southwind Orchards in Dakota.
