Pumpkin Tuesday

20121001-203454.jpg

I don’t know that there is any vegetable that calls to a wider audience than winter squash. When you think pumpkin, butternut or acorn squash, you think comfort food, fall colors and family gatherings. In our local market we have been seeing winter squash creep in greater and great numbers. This coming weekend our nearest pumpkin farm will open its doors on the weekends welcoming families to come and pick their own pumpkins.  You will certainly be seeing us there in the near future!

Since it is now October (how did that happen?) I want to welcome back Pumpkin Tuesday. I started this series the first year I started this blog. But then it faded away with the arrival of two babies.  I now have more time on my hands and want to bring it back. So every Tuesday this month I will feature a pumpkin recipe. If you would like to see all the pumpkin recipes I already have click here. I think I will feature more than just pumpkin though as butternut squash, acorn squash, kabocha, and many more are so delicious and can be interchanged with pumpkin.

For this Tuesday I leave you with my recipe for  Ravioli alla Zucca con Burro e Salvia, just in case you have a lot of extra time on your hands and want to taste heaven on a plate.

        Our current fav way to eat it is simply sliced in one inch strips and baked on a cookie sheet. we coat the slices in olive oil, coarse salt and cook at about 350 for 30+ minutes. I flip the slices half way through. I also like to make a creamy butternut soap. I pan cook the cubed squash with onion & garlic until soft then blend it with veg or chicken stock and put in a soup pot and add seasoning and herbs. Also check my recipe tab for a yummy black bean, squash soup.

  3. Pumpkin is so delish, we eat so much of it this time of year. Butternut is a close second to pumpkin here. So many wonderful things to cook up this month.
