I am looking for (healthy--or modifiable) recipes using pumpkin. I have heard there are places that have pumpkin festivals...do they print cookbooks with their recipes?
I would like to incorporate it more into our rotation, but most of the recipes I've tried so far have been pretty blah even though I love pumpkin. (They've mostly been recipes fromm allrecipes.com) Where are all of these great pumpkin recipes I keep hearing about ?
Anyone have a "tried and true" one to share or a source?
PS--I'm not necessarily looking for dessert recipes-they can be savory too, or perhaps even preferably.
Thanks for any suggestions!
Hello, yes there are pumpkin shows, we have a big one here in Circleville ,Ohio. I looked under Circleville Pumpkin Show- or www.pumpkinshow.com they have a recipe column there. Hope it has some recipes you want to try.
Good luck !
Thanks Divous! I'm off to check it out!! It would be neat to go to a fair. I wonder how many places hold an annual pumpkin festival each year...or if there is a directory somewhere...
Anyone else have a tip to share?
Thanks TexasSugar. Have you tried any of the recipes? If so, which ones did you like/dislike.
Canned or fresh? Either is OK. Do you have a preference? I usually use canned, but maybe I should start using fresh?
No I can't say I have. I just thought of that site when you asked about pumpkin. I think fresh and canned can be interchanged but canned is usually thicker than fresh.
If that link doesn't work, you can find some recipes by going to www.tasteofhome.com and typing in "pumpkin"
I read that pumpkin is a "super food" and I would like to incorporate it into our meals more, but I don't have any experience with it besides pumpkin bread and pumpkin pie
I'm glad you posted this question. In my garage dh found a 3-pack of pumpkin that I bought at Sams and forgot, so I need to use them soon. Did you see the recipe for pumpkin oatmeal cookies on the libby's site?
Michelle-Yeah, I did, but I was trying to find ways to incorporate pumpkin into our meals, instead of sweets. I love pumpkin in sweets, I just am not quite sure how to use it in the savory dishes to make it appealing (or unnoticeable, lol).
I loooove pumpkin ravioli in a brown butter sauce, or a sage cream sauce. You can make them yourself with wonton wrappers.
I love pumpkin also! Last week I tried to make pumpkin soup......NASTY!!!! I still feel alittle sick to my stomach thinking about it. My hubby thought it was baby food, but he is such a tropper that he actually ate it. I could not get over the consistancy. So if you find a GREAT soup recipie please PM.
