All About

Pumpkins

Pumpkins begin to ripen in September. If you're looking for autumn-ready pumpkin recipes, make sure to select pumpkins intended for cooking. With dense, sweet flesh, sugar pumpkins and cheese pumpkins are good for cooking and baking. Field pumpkins -- the common jack-o’-lantern variety -- have watery, stringy flesh and aren’t recommended for eating.

recipe

If you don't have pumpkin-pie spice, you can instead use 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon mixed with 1/4 teaspoon each of ground ginger and nutmeg. It's very important to make sure the bread soaks up the flavorful custard to ensure a velvety consistency.
