The great thing about pumpkin is that it is a very versatile fruit. You can make amazing sweet or savory pumpkin recipes. While it makes the most amazing pumpkin cake or pumpkin bread it can also make a comforting pumpkin soup or curry.
The evenings are getting cooler, the leaves are shedding, the markets are full of pumpkins and apples signaling the arrival of fall. Time to bring out those sweaters, boots, and scarf.
I'm looking forward to the occasional rain, warm evening soups and movie nights under the blanket. This is the perfect time to enjoy the seasonal pumpkin.
Did you know that the pumpkin is actually a fruit not a vegetable? Yes, but it has to be cooked. While you can boil or steam it one of my favorite ways to use it is to roast it. Roasting helps bring out its natural flavors and makes it more sweeter.
Two basics for all your pumpkin recipes
