Presbyterian Pumpkin Bread
I spent hours combing through my grandmothers recipes and found this little gem. Apparently this recipe comes from one of my great grandmother's friends named Virginia Manson which dates it to around the turn of the 20th century. As can be seen from the title this is an old family recipe from the northern neck of Virginia, specifically in a small town named Sharps. Sharps is a close-knit religious community on a small strip of the Rappahannock river with only one church, which coincidentally is Presbyterian.
