The big pumpkins are for carving. They are not as sweet as the small ones. The little ones are for eating. They are so sweet. I used to buy them right after Halloween when the prices drop drastically. I used to freeze it in 12 ounce containers. The same amount as the cans. Then if I had less than that at the end, I would freeze it in four ounce container.

Looks good to me. I'm going to try it. What do you serve with it if it is dinner?

A salad. I would put finely diced raw carrots in the salad. The color would replicate that of the soup. And don't forget that dollop of sour cream on top of the soup.

ATK found that is you cook the canned pumpkin first on low heat, it will get rid of that metallic taste. Just a few minutes is all it needs. Enough to heat it up. Then you can add your other ingredients.

The day after Thanksgiving I would go with a mug of pumpkin soup and an epic club or grilled cheese sandwich with turkey, cranberries, etc.

Build it and they will come!

I always feel a little guilty putting one in the oven. They are so cute. If they had some, I would probably buy at least three so I could cook one and let the others sit around where I could admire them as fall decorations.

There is good reason those little ones are called sugar pumpkins.

I like to serve it with (Mexican flavored) chicken as a main. Otherwise just a turkey, sprout and avocado sandwich.

I think this will be the recipe that I use as my guide.

I will make some additions, deletions, and substitutions along the way!

Nice starter recipe, but I would be leaving out the brown sugar and cinnamon in the beginning. If I wanted pumpkin pie, I would just make it.
