Thanksgiving pies

Butternut and cranberry pies
What's Thanksgiving without a pie, or two, or three?  I promised to bring a couple to our family's feast, and couldn't resist making two small butternut squash pies and one huge cranberry raisin pie.

I've been doing a bit of experimenting with using our homegrown honey, so the recipes you'll get by following the links above can be made totally sugar-free.  Look in the comments section to see the honey version of the butternut pie and notice the tweaks I've made to the cranberry raisin pie recipe to keep the filling from sticking to the bottom of the pot.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Give your chickens the gift of a homemade chicken waterer, always poop-free.
