Pumpkin Alternatives

As all of this Halloween nonsense gets going full swing, I'd just like to note that here in Slovakia, where Halloween exists only as a form of cultural imperialism, they we actually eat pumpkins in forms other than pie.

For example, this week I had fried pumpkin that was just as tasty and delicate as fried zucchini -- flour, egg then finally breadcrumbs cover the pumpkin. There is also a side dish with grated pumpkin + sweet cream that is really good. Here's a recipe, although I've not had it with the vinegar taste I don't think. Here are even more recipes, from Britain -- speaking of cultural imperialism. ;)
