I am making a spicy pumpkin ramen this weekend. I wanted to use fresh pumpkin. I can't remember the last time I used pumpkin. I usually go for delicata or other winter squashes. For this recipe, I wanted pumpkin. I cut it in half and roasted a small sugar pumpkin. I was so disappointed. it is more of a yellow color, not at all sweet and not a bit of pumpkin flavor.
I usually buy my produce at 2 neighborhood local Whole Foods type markets, but I was at safeway and their organic squashes were beautiful. A good case for beauty being skin deep. Are there other varieties that would have had that good pumpkin flavor that I was looking for?
My dog Olivia is thoroughly enjoying the pumpkin.
