What's your favorite way of
eating pumpkins and other squashes?
What will happen to all these
pumpkins, currently decorating
Quebec City's Town Hall?
- This list and this one provide lots of links with more information about the importance of reducing food waste in general.
- If you grow your own, a lot of squash varieties are easy to cure and store well into winter.
- Then you can make make a recipe like this soup from Hunter-Angler-Gardener-Cook, pumpkin pie from scratch, or roasted squash, and use those cucurbits for more than just jack-o-lanterns and centerpieces.
- Remember to save the seeds, either for next year’s garden or roast them for a snack or garnish.
|This time of year, squash soup can be made|
100% local - onions, squashes, garlic, even
some puréed greens like swiss chard. A dash
of curry and ginger give it a nice twist, though, too.
This concept was also applied to this post in the When Artists Cook series (complete with an original sketch!), as well as printed in this Quebec Chronicle-Telegraph article.
