Ingredients

1 Pie or Sugar Pumpkin, about 3 pounds – yield 2 cups of pumpkin purée

Refrigerated pie crust

1 1/2 cup heavy cream or one 12 oz. can of evaporated milk

1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar

1/3 cup white sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 eggs plus the yolk of a third egg

2 teaspoons of cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

1/2 teaspoon of grated lemon zest

Instructions

Remove the stem from the pumpkin and scrape out the insides, discarding the seeds. Cut the pumpkin in half and lay the pieces cut-side down on a rimmed baking sheet lined with Bake-O-Glide. Place sheet in the center rack of the Roasting Oven. Roast until fork-tender, about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove and let cool.

While the pumpkin is cooling, line an AGA ceramic dish with pastry dough. Place in the refrigerator to rest.

Once pumpkin has cooled, remove skin and press pumpkin through a food mill or chinois for an extra smooth consistency. Beat the eggs in a large bowl. Mix in the sugars, salt, spices, and lemon zest. Mix in the pumpkin purée. Stir in the cream. Beat together until everything is well mixed.

Pour the filling in to the rested pastry dish. Cook the pie on the floor of the Roasting Oven using the Cold Plain Shelf above on the second runner down. Bake for about 40 minutes until set. Serve with a dollop of cool whip.  Pumpkin Pie on the AGA has never been so easy.

Chicken Dinner on the AGA

Ingredients

  • 1- 5 lb. Roasting Chicken

  • Fresh Thyme
  • Fresh Rosemary
  • 3-6 whole Garlic Cloves
  • 2 TBSP real Butter
  • Optional: ½ lb. bacon

  2. Place the chicken onto the cut onions. Cut the remaining onion into quarters and stuff into the cavity of the chicken along with several sprigs of each fresh thyme and rosemary and the whole garlic cloves.

Notes

A true family favorite is even more succulent when cooked in a cast iron AGA oven. This simple yet delicious recipe just became easier as the cast iron AGA keeps the bird moist on the inside and browned perfectly on the outside. The capacity of each oven allows you to bake a 30-pound turkey or three 6-pound chickens at a time all the while steaming vegetables, roasting potatoes and baking an apple pie. This same recipe can be applied to chicken or turkey, whichever bird you prefer.
