Look for Cinderella pumpkins in the fall and winter months.
Cinderella pumpkins have a vivid, red-orange, hard exterior and a somewhat flattened shape with deep,characteristic lobes. This pumpkin's rich, thick flesh is moist and custard-like with a sweet flavor.
Pumpkins provide dietary fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium and some iron.
Fresh pumpkin may be cooked in a variety of ways but also keeps very well and may be canned or frozen. Peel and dice into chunks, then cook with onions, carrots, celery, red curry paste and stock, then puree into a Thai-inspired soup. Simmer diced pumpkin in coconut milk with onions, ginger, garlic and cilantro until cooked through, then serve the curry over rice. Fold one pound of fresh pumpkin puree into muffin batter with raisins, walnuts, cinnamon and nutmeg, then bake. Roast the seeds on a cookie sheet at a low oven temperature; stir often and watch carefully so they don't burn. To store, keep pumpkin in a cool dry area up to one month, or refrigerate for up to 3 months.
Having origins in France, Cinderella pumpkins are a popular French heirloom variety. Originating in the New World, pumpkins, Cucurbita pepo, are a variety of winter squash. Native Americans introduced this magnificent vegetable to the conquistadors who eagerly took the pumpkin back to Europe. Its name is from the Greek word "pepon", meaning mellow or ripe. Early Frenchmen called them "poupon" which became "poumpon", then "pompion" and finally "kin" was added to create the name as we know it today.
