    World's Largest Pumpkin Pie

   The current world record stands at 2,020 pounds (after baking). It was prepared and baked by the New Bremen Giant Pumpkin Growers at New Bremen, Ohio. This huge pie was made on October 8, 2005.     This pie was 2,020 pounds. It measured 12 feet, 4 inches wide and 4 inches deep.

  The pie recipe included 900 pounds of pumpkin, 155 dozen eggs, 62 gallons of evaporated milk, 300 pounds of sugar, 3.5 pounds of salt, 7 pounds of cinnamon and 2 pounds of pumpkin pie spice.

   The pie lost over 200 pounds while baking. The pie made over 3000 pieces. Baking began at about 6:00am. The pie was baked for over five hours in a custom made oven.

    Most Lit Pumpkins
   For years, the folks in Keene, New Hampshire held and routinely broke this record. In 2006, their record stood at 28,952 lit pumpkins. Yes, the pumpkins must all be lit at the same time in the same place.
    On October 26, 2007, Boston Ma. shattered this record with 30,128 lit pumpkins! Rumor has it, they are still "glowing" over this feat. The record was part of a fundraiser for Camp Sunshine, raising over $250,000.
