Great Pumpkins

Pumpkin, so emblematic of the end of the summer and entry into Autumn. It’s among the last of the great harvests, just in time for Halloween and right through Thanksgiving pumpkins grace out stoops and our tables, but what can you really do with them?

That’s a valid question because we tend to think of pumpkins as ornaments at worst, and pie fling that comes from a can at best. Of course they are winter squash like Butternut and Kabocha, thought as not as prized. Pumpkin tends to be less intensely flavored, often less sweet, and less firm and holding more water than the best winter squash but that shouldn’t prevent you from trying your hand at some of these great recipes that take advantage of this super abundant and well priced American icon.
