Our forefathers in Massachusetts and elsewhere in New England during the early 17th century referred to pumpkins as Pompions, as well as other alterations of todays' spelling of Pumpkin. They were enjoyed universally and today would not be so widespread if it wasn't for the helpful hand of the natives that they wrote atrocities about.
FYI: Did you know that the natives on our shores were not the first to 'scalp"? Nope! The "white man" was the originator of this hideous "follicle cleanser".
Back to this recipe. My tribute to our "welcoming party" in many ways that can only be rewarded by a great meal. This is a great meal and made even better with the laundry list of Yankee ingredients, of which you should already have in your pantry.
Makes about 6(3-fritter) servings.
