Cooking Pumpkin

Cooking Pumpkin

Pumpkin isn't difficult to cook. I quickly hack it into a few pieces, throw it into a big dish in the microwave and cook it on automatic, or chuck them into a pot of water and boil it, cool it then remove the skin if I want the pulp for pies or soup. (Pumpkin soup of different kinds is a staple winter food here for many people.)

Otherwise I steam it to serve instead of potato, or I roast it with the joint, potatoes, sweet potatoes, etc.

I have made pumpkin pie, but not in November - pumpkins are cheap here in May. As I said, I have no idea if the pumpkin pie I make is the same kind of creature as the pumpkin pie you all enjoy. Of course, as I am discovering that yours are multiple in their incarnations, perhaps mine is the same as someone's. I love it, anyway! It is spicy, sweetish, pumpkiny, custardy, and crisp (the pastry).
