the king of pumpkins

it’s pumpkin season and if you want to enjoy it at its best you need to track down one of these dusky grey-green beauties – ignore the more usual large orange skinned pumpkins.

this is a crown prince pumpkin. it has a texture similar to butternut squash – dense and smooth in texture. it’s flavour is rich and almost chestnut-like.

it is unlike any other pumpkin and my absolute favourite. you must try it, if you haven’t already.
