Fondue in a Pumpkin
By Wild Greens And Sardines

Cheese is my weakness. Cupcakes don’t do it for me. Ditto for donuts. But give me a hunk of cheese and now we’re talking. One of my favorite cheeses is a raw, Basque sheep’s milk cheese, Ossau-Iraty, that I discovered at a farmers’ market in Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, France (before the start of my Camino de Santiago last year). I’ve looked for it in the United States, but can only find pasteurized Ossau-Iraty, which doesn’t taste nearly as flavorful as what I fondly remember.


It all started with this pumpkin (pictured above). It often goes something like this…this rather unusual looking pumpkin caught my eye. I bought it and it sat on my counter all week. What shall I do with it? Pumpkin soup? Nah. Pumpkin ravioli? Um, maybe. Pumpkin mac and cheese? Getting closer. And that’s when I came across the idea for fondue in a pumpkin. Can it be done? How will it taste?

Utterly delicious!!


My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
