Ingredients And Procedures

1 5-pound pumpkin

2 To 3 cups brown rice,

Cooked 2 c Crumbled dry whole wheat

Bread (or part corn bread Etc ) I used bread Crumbs and corn meal. 1 Onion, chopped

1/2 To 1 cup chopped celery and

Leaves 2 Apples (tart and unpeeled),

Chopped 1 c Roasted chestnuts or a

Andful of cashew nuts, cut In half. x Herbs: Sage, savory, Marjoram, oregano, and Paprika to taste. I used About a teaspoon Each 1 To 2 cups vegetable stock

1/4 To 1/2 cup butter, melted,

Or safflower oil. [ed ...Necessary?] Soy sauce or salt to taste. Cut off top of pumpkin to make a lid. Remove the seeds and scrape out any stringy pulp. Combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix well with hands. Add stock and butter, and mix well, adding soy sauce and salt if desired. Stuffing should be moist but not wet. Pack loosely into pumpkin, replace lid, and bake on oiled cookie sheet for 1 1/2 hours or more at 325 F. It is done when a fork pushes easily through the pumpkin. Transfer to a caserloe dish and serve at the table, scooping out some of the tender pumpkin flesh with each serving of stuffing. If the pumpkin is organically grown, you may eat the skin too. (If you have too much stuffing for your pumpkin, place extra in an oiled casserole, cover, and bake for 1 hour.)
