5 Days of Pumpkins: Butternut

Our pumpkin harvest is rolling in and we are stacking them up to store for our winter fodder. These vegetables come in a beautiful array of forms, sizes and colours, so much so that I was inspired to paint their portraits...

I love the soft pastel tones of the butternut pumpkin. Don't let
the commonality of this variety put you off, they are common
because everyone is in on their little secret. Gorgeous smooth
sweet flesh. Cook these anyway you like, roasted, steamed,
put them in a pie, they never disappoint.
