We have friends in the country, and on the way to their home there's not one but two pumpkin patches. The rows of green vines and orange globes call out to us - pumpkins are ready!
Fat orange pumpkins are a fall cliché but we still love the rich orange squash. It's a fruit, not a vegetable, technically, and its bright orange flesh is incredibly good for you. Roasted, steamed, pureed, baked - it's healthy and smoky-sweet, an original New World superfood.
