Posted by on October 14 2010 in Featured, Lists, Recipe, Veggie

Pumpkin season is here! Now let’s be honest — for most of us, that means leftover pumpkin season is here, too — because how many times can you make boring old pumpkin pie? Never fear, Endless Simmer is here. Whether you’ve got half-a-can of pumpkin puree sitting around, a cupboard full of pumpkin pie filling, the stringy insides of a Jack-o-Lantern or just a few stray pumpkin seeds, we scoured the web for 100 creative recipes that will help you use up all that beautiful orange goodness.

    We’re brewing a pumpkin beer this weekend, sucka. Wish you were here. Also, for DC folks, Radius has some really good, affordable seasonable options right now… pumpkin pizza, kale & white bean soup, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin smores, etc.

    Wow! I never know there are so many interesting ways to cook pumpkins. Thanks for sharing. My favourite way is to cook this pumpkin rice: http://food-4tots.com/2009/06/13/my-recipe-column-featured-in-kwong-wah-yit-poh/.

    Love it! Thanks so much for including my cheese puffs.

    This is an excellent pumpkin post – I will refer back to it often. Thanks so much for including my pumpkin applesauce. There are so many goodies here I can’t wait to try!

    I love it! YUM pumpkin! I just posted bite-sized pumpkin-sage cupcakes with double brown buttercream (brown sugar + brown butter) and they are DIVINE.

    All these pumpkin recipes look so delicious! I’ll definitely use this as a resource to use up all the homemade pumpkin puree I made yesterday.

    I know there’s already a latte recipe posted, but I thought I’d include mine since it’s a little different. It’s a pumpkin spice syrup and can be added to individual lattes instead of making all of them at once. http://cooklikeachampion.blogspot.com/2010/09/pumpkin-spice-syrup-for-pumpkin-spice.html

    Dear, oh dear! You’ve managed to put me in the “pumpkin mood” a little bit ahead of the season (for me! I’m always holding out for fall veggies as long as I can). A fantastic collection of recipes. I’m very honored to be part of it. Thank you so much for including me.

    One of my favorite pumpkin/squash creations is an acorn squash-onion pudding, like the best of French onion soup minus the sulfur taste and smell, with the lovely addition of acorn squash or small pumpkins. The photos aren’t pretty, but the dish is tasty!

    These all look so great!
    I roast pumpkin, much like potatoes and use it in a brown butter sage sauce to top whole wheat pasta.

    In Australia we don’t have a pumpkin season as we have multiple varieties of fresh pumpkin available year round. We don’t have a need for canned pumpkin. We most commonly eat it as a vegetable with a meal of course- baked, mashed, in chunks in salads, it’s always delicious. I do a great pumpkin pasta sauce, and make many types of pumpkin soup. These 100 recipes look great though. So many that I’d like to try. Thanks for the post.

    I made the pumpkin whoopie pies this weekend w/fresh pumpkin puree! THEY ARE SOOOOOOO GOOD & easy to make!!!!

    This is such a great resource for pumpkin and winter squash recipes. Great ideas for bake sales to make things a little different this year.
