Try Topping Freshly Roasted Pumpkin With Walnuts & Honey For A Dish That Is Sure To Please

Ingredients:

1 whole pumpkin
2 TBS melted butter or vegetable oil
Salt & Pepper

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Remove seeds and pulp from pumpkin then cut into large wedges. You can leave the outer rind on (or remove if desired).
  • Lay the wedges flesh side up on a baking sheet or roasting pan.
  • Brush each piece with butter or vegetable oil then season well with salt and pepper.
  • Roast in the oven until the pumpkin is fork-tender and the top has caramelized a bit (approximately 35 to 45 minutes depending on size of pumpkin).
  • Once cooked, remove wedges from oven and serve (slip off the peels before serving if you wish).

Walnuts & Honey Topping Idea: Arrange walnuts in a small casserole dish, drizzle with honey (toss walnuts to coat) then pop in the oven, uncovered, during the last 15 minutes of cooking time.

    You didn’t mention the size of the pumpkin. I’ve heard that smaller ones have more flavour than the large ones used primarily as Jack O’ lanterns. I still like to use my left over Jack and cook it (as above). Once cooled I remove the skin and puree the remaining pumpkin then freeze it.
