October 21: Do you like foods containing pumpkin (real pumpkin, not just pumpkin spice) and if so, what is your favorite?

Yes.  Pumpkin pie, although pumpkin cheesecake is good too.

 

I don't know that I've had many (any?) savory dishes that use pumpkin.  Maybe I should fix that.

A lady in our church makes the BEST pumpkin roll you have ever tasted!

I used to make a pretty fair pumpkin roll, but it's a lot of work, and you can buy them pretty cheap at most bakery/delis. 

 

I don't use pumpkin spice in much, instead I use cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves because that allows me to adjust the ratio accordingly to my taste.

Oh! I just remembered I once had a pumpkin and apple vegan "sushi" roll that had been deep fried and served with some sort of savory brown sauce. Sounded kind of gross but was super delicious. Definitely recommend if you ever see something similar.

I remember having pumpkin pie once, and I think I liked it.

 

But it's just not a food stuff that's eaten in my part of the world, they only seem to get used as Halloween decorations (and even that feels like a fairly recent thing).

Yes. 

Pumpkin bread, Pumpkin muffins, Pumpkin pie are all good. 

I am too #culinarilychallenged to recognize pumpkin spice much less have an opinion about it.

I like pumpkin quite a bit. Pumpkin soup is pretty good. Pumpkin bread. Pumpkin cake. My favorite is pumpkin pie or baked pumpkin cheesecake. 

Never had pumpkin soup. 

Never had a pumpkin cake although I think it would just be a pumpkin muffin writ Large. 

I had a pumpkin cheesecake once. :wacko:

Yes.  I usually make pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.  I also have a recipe for a killer pumpkin pecan cake.

These sound good.

I like pumpkin in chili, too.  I've done pumpkin soup, but wasn't a fan of it plain.

I am willing to try these. Might wind up being just the once.

I did pumpkin salt caramel once, thought it was good but nobody else did.  That was before salt caramel became a thing.

Never had any sort of salt caramel.

My wife is very allergic to pumpkin and it has been getting worse as she ages.  The last time she accidentally got pumpkin in her mouth, her airways started to close.  We are VERY careful this time of year.

That depends, do cows eat pumpkins? ::P:

 

Yes, actually.  They really like them.  They'll kick them open to get to the seeds.

It's a dessert where you make a flat thin sheet of pumpkin bread/cake and then layer it with a cream cheese confection mixture and then roll it up. It's usually served sliced into pieces.

Pie, cheesecake and muffins come to mind.  Keep it out of my coffee please!

I don't do pumpkin anymore (Mr. Thorne is allergic; it screws his digestion up something fierce), but I was never a fan of pumpkin pie anyway. 

The only thing I miss is pumpkin cake, which tended to include chocolate chips and cannot easily be described otherwise. Delicious.

Occasionally, I make a batch, with giant labels, and then clean... pretty much everything in the work space.

 

... maybe the kitchen is due a thorough cleaning. I have muffin pans.
