Actually, probably the easiest thing to do is to make another batch of chili. The extra puree would make it too thick -- and it's already super thick -- but I could compensate by adding another can of tomatoes or some tomato juice. I'd rather have chili than pumpkin bread or pumpkin cookies or whatever. But I don't suppose there's any need to decide right now. The puree will keep for a few more days.
I also need to look into what I might do with the turnips I picked up at the farmer's market last weekend. My first instinct is to slice them up and eat them raw, which I think is a tasty treat, but maybe there's something else I could try. Any thoughts from the peanut gallery?
