Min, pumpkins have so many varieties, maybe you just need to find a different one?

I generally grow  anywhere from 5-8 varieties of pumpkin & squash per year & try to find ones I haven't grown before, so finding a pumpkin I DO like may prove more difficult than you think.

Of them all, if there is a sugar-sweetness about them when cooked........I won't enjoy them. I also dislike sweet potato for the same reason.
I would say that overall I am a 'savoury' kind of girl, & when I eat dessert I really don't want them to taste vegetable-y.

I grow them & they for some reason like me more than I like them, but they never go to waste. I give as much away as I can & the rest is donated to schools for them to do with as they will.

Re: Wouldn't it be cool?

What about poultry? Some will be near Thanksgiving and others in the Northern Hemisphere could perhaps do a roast or something? A curry/ braise/stew/ soup etc.

Those of us in the Southern Hemisphere could grill, bbq, make a salad etc.

Just a thought.

Re: Wouldn't it be cool?

I made pumpkin risotto a bit before the 1st of the month.... and then I was minding my young friend and was aware of the day going past with no possibility of a pumpkin dish. I might try to catch up with you Mummza! Two weeks!

And then I can make my poultry dish on time! crossed  crossed  crossed

Re: Wouldn't it be cool?

Yesterday was 34C so I was completely unimaginative and used the grill pan to cook a chicken breast in a citrus based marinade. Garden salad and avocado and tomato salsa on the side.
