pumpkin / squash???

Does anyone use the orange pumpkin ? If so - how do you cook it? I'd like to try it but dont know what to do with it. Can you make oven chips with it like you can sweet potato? or do you put it in soups and stews?

I roast it in chunks with olive oil, chopped onion, fresh rosemary and garlic. 45-60 mins in 180C

It's also used for a dessert after long slow simmering in a sugar syrup and then chilled. I imagine that could be used to make a parfait or sorbet. . . hmm. . . will have to try that.

Ive just made this Kanga and it was delicious! Thanks very much! will certainly be making it again. I also cut a few chips from it, rolled them in a little olive oil and baked them. They were lovely. Next time I'll grind a bit of sea salt on them before cooking.

"Sugar Cyrup" I must try that, it sounds just like what a diabetic would need.

Why is everything that tastes nice always laced with sugar ? There are alternative ways of sweetening produce but I can't understand why the food industry is transfixed with the 'white poison'. Xylitol is one example and it is actually good for you. Stevia is another. If I go into a cake shop and ask them if they use xylitol in any of their confectionery I just get strange looks. Why oh Why I ask ?

Re: pumpkin / squash???

One of the medical profession's queries about alternatives to sugar is the body's reaction to the taste of sweetness. If your body reacts to an initial taste of sugar in a certain way, can it differentiate from the sweetness taste from stevia or xylitol? If tasting sugar results in specific reactions in saliva, then in the liver etc, will the same reactions happen with other sweeteners? What happens in the body if it prepares to eat sugar because of the taste trigger, but doesn't receive sugar?
Could that be damaging, I don't know.
I agree about the pumpkin dessert and personally don't eat it, but I will experiment with a sorbet this summer.
If you are diabetic try switching to a lower carb diet and using the foods that release carbs slowly, like sweet potatoes, oatmeal and wholemeal bread.
Cinnamon is also a good alternative 'sweetener'.

Hi, I'm in Side and buy Sweet Potatoes and Yams from Migros. Expensive but well worth it both for the taste and food value. They refer to both as 'Tatlı Patates'.

Not all Migros branches sell them though. Out of the 4 Migros in and around Side, only the one on the main junction of the D400 have them. I would think if they're available here, you must be able to get them over in Alanya.

Good luck.
