There's bound to be some in the Recipe section on here

I make pumpkin pie as I grow pie pumpkins. There's a recipe in WW Your Week this week  :)
I've made jam
I use the firm fleshed ones for curry, stews and roasting
Soggier fleshed ones get used in mash and the desserts
I like to roast the firm ones with other roast veg on open trays in the oven
The firm ones are good with rice dishes
Try them roasted round the meat, yum
You can roast and then make soup. Roasting seems to improve the finished result
You can use the grated flesh in the same way as courgette for muffins and cakes

thank you ladies, am i right in thinking you can roast them with their skin on like butternut squash?  Or do they have to be peeled?

some of them have very hard skins, that you can only cut with an axe  :ohmy: eg Iton Bark pumpkins.
That kind obviously need to have the hard skin cut off before or after cooking :)

I chop into wedges and roast/steam, then skin.  Much easier on the knife, patience and language!  :ohmy:

Pumpkin risotto.  Roast it in cubes, mash half and keep other whole.  Add to a plain risotto with some fried sage leaves.   :)
Cheese makes everything better.

If you roast with the skin on you can either leave it on and eat it, it goes chewy, or take it off before making your soup or whatever

I'd always roasted and then removed the skin and chucked it away but Hugh Fernly ate his so I tried it and it's ok.  We eat potato skins don't we  :D
