Looking for Australian recipes for the Zaar World Tour 2005? Look no further! This is innovative Australian cuisine at its best: a most unusual and absolutely delicious-sounding recipe which I have adapted just slightly from a book I HAD TO BUY when I saw it today: 'Green: modern vegetarian recipes' by Australian cook Flip Shelton. As Flip says of this recipe you really can “brighten the darkest winter days with this warm, colourful salad”.
Also called an "Ancient New England Standing Dish".
This is a delicious recipe for pumpkin, known as "pompions" to English people in the 17th century (as were all squash.) It is one of the earliest written recipes from New England, from a book written by John Josselyn, a traveler to New England in the 1600's. (John Josselyn, Two Voyages to New England.)
John Josselyn called this recipe a “standing dish” suggesting that this sort of pumpkin dish was eaten everyday or even at every meal. He called it “ancient” because English housewives had cooked this recipe in New England for a long time. Josselyn also says at the end of this recipe that this food provokes urine and causes gas (windy)!
Chef Keller says he calls this a chutney because of the sweet and sour elements, but that it is really "a ratatouille in disguise." He serves this with sauteed skate for a very elegant Provencal entree.
These are the cutest things! and they don't taste 1/2 bad either. They are quite popular here at my house and not hard to make (always a +). I haven't tried this with the yeast, I just add another 1/2 cup of bread crumbs. I hope you enjoy them.
P.S. The pumpkins that I use are called Sugar Babys in my area.
I had an abundance of pumpkins that I grew last year, so I tried this recipe from Gourmet Magazine and it was fantastic. The recipe calls for solid packed pumpkin, so feel free to use that if you don't have fresh pumpkin available. This recipe is scaled to serve 2, so adjust according to your needs. I hope you enjoy it!
A delicious recipe for pumpkin that's not a dessert! I usually make my own pumpkin puree in the blender with a little water. This dish is mild and warming; my kids like it because it looks like mac and cheese!
