I’m a year-round fan of the color orange, but never more so then now, when vividly-colored pumpkins are in season.
In the weeks before Halloween, huge pumpkins for carving and decorating, abound everywhere. However, as soon as Halloween passes, the only pumpkins you’ll find are small sugar pumpkins, usually in limited quantities, in the produce department of the supermarket. These are the pumpkins you want for making pie and other desserts, breads and many savory dishes — including soup.
