Sugar Pumpkin? What is the taste?

chef chicklet | Nov 12, 2007 02:48 PM

I'm eyeballing the little sugar pumpkin on my kitchen table like its piggy and I'm waiting to fatten it up. But so far I haven't figured out what exactly I'm going to do with it.. which happens often to me when I get ready to cook!

I have not ever tasted fresh pumpkin. Nope never have I cooked the carved out pumpkins or made fresh pumpkin soup.

I love squash, mostly butternut, yellow, and acorn. I do love all of those.
But before I get a recipe, I'm wondering, is it sweet? Like the Acorn which to me are just a delight to eat with butter, not much else is needed. The butternut is to me is less sweet, make wonderful just wonderful soup....sigh. And then there is the yellow crooknecks, sauteed grilled, or my favorite, steamed. Actually all in all I like squash best pretty much left alone.
So before I tear into this little pumpkin, can anyone describe to me or is close to the squash I've mentioned. I can't wait to make it, and if you have a good idea how to prepare it, or a favorite recipe I'm willing to listen!
