Like the egg, pumpkin is an incredibly versatile ingredient: it can lend a creamy texture to sauces and cocktails, or mellow, earthy flavor to pancakes and baked goods. Roasted pumpkin (and even canned pumpkin purée) shines when paired with warm spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and ginger, which help subdue its vegetal flavor and bring out the sweet notes of this quintessential autumn squash. Take advantage of its season by showcasing it in one or all of these pumpkin-focused recipes.
