A Makeover for the Ubiquitous Fall Vegetable
Pumpkin skyrocketed to popularity with pumpkin spice lattes more than 10 years ago, and it's been pumpkin-spice everything ever since, from cream cheese to Jell-O. But there's much more to the squash than its affinity for cinnamon and nutmeg. We spotted the veg in Skillet's Pumpkin Ketchup, which can go atop burgers or other sandwiches, and Urban Accents' Mexican Chile Pumpkin Mole (simmer it with chicken or vegetables). Pumpkin seeds, too, are showing up in unlikely places, such as in American Spoon's Pumpkin Seed Salsa, a sauce that also includes tomatoes, red bell peppers, onions, vinegar and cilantro.
