Pumpkin

Pumpkin is one of those ingredients that remind us of fall, whether it's baked into a classic Thanksgiving pie or transformed into an inspired seasonal latte. But pumpkins are for more than making Jack-O-Lanterns—this hearty, lightly sweet squash is delicious any time of year and any time of day, though its peak season is (appropriately) in October. Sweet or savory, dinner or dessert—pumpkin will be your new go-to ingredient. Whether you're looking for a new take on pumpkin pie or a hearty dinner recipe, check out F&W's guide and get inspired. And don't forget to roast the seeds!

Whole Roasted Pumpkin with Green Beans and Red Curry Rice

Long Island cheese pumpkins have deep, vibrant orange flesh and a sweet, nutty flavor. They roast smooth and creamy, making them the ideal squash for pies, purees, or serving as edible vessels for soups and curries. Here, rice is cooked to a risotto-like texture inside the pumpkin with red curry paste and coconut milk. Serve it as a hearty and warming main course or as a side dish for roast fish or pork. Bring the whole pumpkin to the table on a rimmed baking sheet or platter, and spoon the saucy rice, studded with spoonfuls of tender pumpkin, into shallow bowls. Be sure to line the baking sheet well, as the pumpkin may release juices during baking.
