Fall Fest: Pumpkins and Squash

David Rocco's Pumpkin Soup

Fall Fest 2010We’re teaming up with other food and garden bloggers to host Summer Fest 2010, a season-long garden party. Each week we’ll feature favorite garden-to-table recipes and tips to help you enjoy the bounty, whether you’re harvesting your own goodies or buying them fresh from the market. To join in, check out awaytogarden.com.

At long last, it’s squash and pumpkin season. There’s so much to love about winter squashes in their many forms — butternut, acorn, buttercup, spaghetti, delicata, hubbard, kabocha, sweet dumping, Cinderella pumpkins, sugar pie pumpkins. Yes, they all look lovely in a basket on your porch, or carved up with scary faces and all of that, but they deserve better — you deserve better —  here are some great ways to take advantage of these beautiful-to-gaze-at but even better-to-eat vegetables.
