Many people have asked what type of pumpkin to use when cooking pumpkin for use in recipes. Personally I prefer the smaller pie pumpkin, but you can cook the larger “jack-o-lantern” pumpkin as well.
The smaller pumpkins are sweeter so you will need to adjust the sugar in your pumpkin recipes if you are using the larger pumpkins.
My only suggestion is that you avoid the pumpkins with hair.
What will they think of next?
