Worldcook's Pumpkin recipes

Autumn is the season for the pumpkin. Of course we all know its use for Halloween, on the 31st of October, when children put a candle inside. Actually, the dried outside of the pumpkin was (and I still saw it in Uganda) used for different purposes, like utensils or musical instruments. The pumpkin has been grown already 9,000 years ago in Mexico. Finally, the Americans have adopted the pumpkin as their signature vegetable, and they serve pumpkin pie, together with turkey, on Thanksgiving Day at the end of November.
You can cook, fry or bake the pumpkin; you need to peel it first and take the seeds and threads out. Pumpkin makes a simple but delicious soup. You can use it in sweet dishes like pies and cookies, and in savory dishes like pasta and oriental dishes.
