Fall Means Pumpkins

Pumpkins are at their prime from September to late November, so now’s the time to transform these attractive seasonal squashes into delectable dishes — and we’re not just talking pie! A pumpkin’s mild, succulent flesh marries beautifully with many other flavors, and it can be prepared in almost any way that’s suitable for other winter squashes: baked, roasted, grilled, boiled, braised, or even hollowed out and used as a serving container. Over in the Earthbound Farms kitchens, they’re whipping up all kinds of wonderful pumpkin recipes including, Pumpkin Gratin, Savory Pumpkin Tart, Pumpkin and Coconut Soup (this one sounds extra delicious), Steamed Ginger, Date, and Pumpkin Pudding (which is actually much more like a cake than a pudding), Pumpkin Cheesecake and more!
