International Pumpkin Month

An interesting thing has happened while I've been writing about cooking with pumpkin for the last year: I have picked up readers from all over the planet. Apparently everyone likes pumpkin. Fifty-two countries and counting. It never fails to amaze me.

Here's the list of countries: United States, Canada, Mexico, Argentina,Trinidad/Tobago, Bermuda, Brazil, Malaysia, South Korea, Philippines, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Thailand, Bangladesh, India, Singapore, Japan, Bahrain, Nepal, China, Denmark, Latvia, Switzerland, Russia, St Helena, Italy, Germany, Netherlands, UK, Ireland, France, Slovenia, Portugal, Spain, Hungry, Ukraine, Croatia, Greece, Macedonia, Slavia, Lithuania, Sweden, Romania, Malta, Morocco, Egypt, South Africa, United Arab Emirates, Pakistan, Israel, Iran, Turkey, Australia, New Zealand, Palau

For this reason I've decided to call October International Pumpkin Month, and am going to highlight recipes from around the world. Here's my neighbor, Ann, with a Mexican pumpkin she picked up for me at the farmers market. I used this pumpkin in several of the recipes.
