Clean through the pumpkin season | My best pumpkin recipes

Pumpkin is a real highlight not only for Halloween, as a scary, beautiful decoration. Also as an autumnal meal it is a real eye-catcher on the dining table. I’m sure you’ve already discovered some of my pumpkin recipes and health facts about pumpkins on the blog. To give you an overview of how you can prepare pumpkins at home, I have put together my pumpkin recipe collection again. Before we get started, I’ll give you a few pumpkin tips:

Where can I buy pumpkin?

Pumpkins are usually an integral part of every supermarket assortment during the season. If you are looking for a more unusual type of pumpkin, visit your local greengrocer or a market nearby. There the assortment is usually bigger.

When can/should I buy pumpkin?

Winter pumpkins like the (often used in my recipes) Hokaido have high season in September and October. However, some of them are available until January.

How do I measure the quality of a pumpkin?

When buying pumpkins, you should make sure that the skin is not damaged and that there are no pressure marks. In addition, the pumpkin should not be soft (be able to be pressed in). If the pumpkin looks too light compared to its size, it is better to keep your fingers off it, because then it usually consists only of fibres and seeds inside.

What’s the best way to store pumpkin?

Pumpkin can be bought in larger quantities as it can be kept for several months if stored properly. It prefers to be dry, cool and airy. It feels most comfortable at approx. 12°C.
