Cooked Pumpkin (Irish Style)

Contributed by: Jane, County Cork, Ireland

Description: Traditional Pumpkin pie is a must for Thanksgiving. But, try not to forget it during the other times of the year. It has the same taste regardless of season. Here is an Irish pumpkin recipe you will enjoy any time you have a fresh pumpkin.


1 Pumpkin, cut into sections.
To taste Black Pepper
1/4 stick Butter

Preparation Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degree.
  2. Cut pumpkin into sections.
  3. Lay pumpkin on a piece of foil.
  4. Add a couple pats of butter and lots of pepper.
  5. Wrap sections in foil and cook until tender.
  6. Scoop out and serve or mash.

Serving Tips and Suggestions:
  • Served with mash potatoes and a grilled steak.

My soup has

had the unfortunate effect of having people like it so much there is none

left for the freezer. I take about a pound of good smoked back bacon and a

couple of onions and fry them gently in butter in the base of a large pan

until just soft. Then I add about 3 pounds of pumpkin flesh and about

2pounds of potatoes. Cover the lot with vegetable stock and simmer until

everything is very tender. Give it a quick whizz with a blender and add

about a pint of double cream.When I made about a gallon using those

quantities last year expecting to freeze most in individual portions I was

left with one single portion. This was after people who do not like pumpkin

had tasted just a mouthful and ended up gorging on the stuff.

All the best, Jane
