You can get great deals on pumpkins this time of year. Do you have any tips or recipes for using pumpkins? Also, do you have any tips for selecting pumpkins to eat? Post your ideas below.
use equal parts pumkin,potatoes,1 onion,stock of choice boil the puree makes good soup excellent to freeze can thin using cream or milk
Try making Pumpkin Butter, just cook and mash the pumpkin to make your own puree beforehand. Great for Holiday Gifts too! :)
Cooked and pureed pumpkin alone has a very subtle flavor and therefore can be added to just about anything! Mix it into breads, sauces (Spaghetti sauce is a great one!) and just about anything. Be creative!
I haven't tried it yet, but I heard adding cooked/pureed pumpkin to hot cocoa makes a more creamy texture (not to mention all the vitamins)
baked spare ribs with sweet potato and pumpkin
4 pork spare rib chops
450g of pumkin
450g sweet potato
1 red pepper
570 mln of chicken stock
salt/pepper few spings of thyme
and hot chilli sauce (optional)
cut away the pork chop rind
peel and dice the pumkin and sweet potato into similar sized cubes
deseed the pepper and dice into squares
peel and finely chop the onion
mix all the veg into a ovenproof dish and cover with chicken stock season and add the thyme and chilli sauce if using
cover and cook for about 2 hrs removing pan lid about 30 mins before end of cooking to brown the chops.....enjoy
I like to put a whole "cooking" pumpkin in the oven at about 300 degrees F and cook it for an hour or two, until it smells good and the shell breaks when I press on it. I take it out and let it cool, then cut it open. I separate the seeds for roasting and scoop out the cooked pumpkin. It is so much easier than trying to skin a raw pumpkin.
Now if I can only think of something to do with that lovely hard shell.
