Actually, I am not talking about a pumpkin but a “melon squash” or “sweet necked squash.”
Some look at its shape and call it a gourd, but when you cut it open you see a solid orange neck and a hollow bulb full of seeds. We dry the seeds to plant in the spring or eat. Michael started growing these squash when he learned that they were sweet enough to eat raw. However, they are best when cooked and used in recipes which call for pumpkin. They make perfect pumpkin pies.
In all the pumpkin recipes posted, I have used this squash either fresh or canned. My latest experience with this delicious vegetable has been a pumpkin cake roll. This is a cake rolled up with cream cheese. This recipe is going to take some practice! Does anyone have any pointers about how to make a pumpkin roll? Mine tasted good but did not look “like the picture.”
