Pumpkins like these beauties have come to symbolize the harvest season. These vegetables can instill as much excitement in children as these big winter squash. From Halloween Jack-o'-lanterns to Cinderella's coach, they can stir the imagination.
There are many different types of pumpkins. For instance, this one is the classic New England Pie Pumpkin and just as its name implies, it will find itself on most tables at Thanksgiving. But others like the Cushaw, Pink Banana, Lumina and Blue Hubbard are equally delicious, despite they are sometimes odd shapes and colors.
However, some pumpkin growers are more interested in size than flavor. Annual pumpkin growing contest can yield some hefty contestants. This Atlantic giant pumpkin weight in at 650 pounds at the end of the season. The seed of pumpkins are often overlooked when used in cooking or making Jack-o'-lanterns. But they can be a delicious treat when roasted.
I just soak them in salty water for about 8 hours. Drain them on a paper towel and roast them on a baking sheet at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. I make sure to stir them frequently. When you bite into them, or crack them open, you will find that the kernel inside is very tasty.
Please make a healthy and delicious snack, and preparing them can be a lot of fun for children. This year after you have enjoyed your pumpkin either as a dessert or a table decoration, enjoy it a little longer by saving and roasting the seed. From the garden, I am Allen Smith.
