Halloween is here, to celebrate it @3DC we cook a Hipster Pumpkin Halloween Skull Moustache Recipe!
Trick or treat?
First we got a nice pumpkin.
Slice it and put it into the oven with some baking paper.
Oven should go at 200ºC for 35 to 45 minutes.
Our oven is not that powerful, so a lot of moisture was still in the pumpkin slices even after cooking for over an hour. That is why I tried to use a fork to ease the water vapor out (#fail).
Once pumpkin is cooked through (stab a fork and feel that is completely soft). Remove from oven. And let it cool down to room temperature. Peel and blend the pumpkin flesh. You should have now a nice and delicious super thin texture purée with nice consistency.
I did 3 different purée batches and I was not getting the right consistency for printing, so I decided to reduce the purée to get a thicker more potato purée like consistency.
we did not wanted to overheat the purée so we were reducing for 45minutes at around 70ºC. After that consistency was ok.
To finish the moustache, it is garnished with some salt to resemble some crumbs. Gross enough? HOPEFULLY SO!!!!
Happy Halloween everybody!
