As the pumpkin season comes to a close I want to post a round up of pumpkin recipes that deviate from the typical pumpkin pie and that you can use most of the year.
Last year I made a whole bunch of pumpkin purée that I forgot about in the spring, and guess what? This October I found that pumpkin purée from last year buried deep in our freezer, and now I have one more set of pumpkin purée still frozen and left to use. So for those of you who need a little pumpkin inspiration like myself throughout the year, here is a quick round up of pumpkin recipes. Links used from others with permission.
