Pretty much anything with pumpkin is amazing: Pumpkin pie, pumpkin ale, the Great Pumpkin, Pumpkinhead, and don’t even get me started on pumpkin ice cream.  Pumpkin is possibly the most popular squash in the world, and it has been totally underused by the Jews; probably due to the fact that there wasn’t exactly a bumper crop of the big orange gourds in the desert or the Pale of the Settlement.

The good people at My Jewish Learning are doing what they can to reverse that trend, and maybe their posting of a stuffed pumpkin recipe to be enjoyed in your sukkah will help place these sorts of dishes next to more tradition seasonal Jewish fare
