Step-by-step recipes for cooking pumpkin in the oven

Quite recently, I said that my father always grew pumpkins and, although not in significant quantities, dishes from it periodically appeared on our table. Amber baked vegetables with honey were one of my favorite desserts. We used vanilla sugar for the aroma and roasted walnuts for the rich taste. At that time, I did not know yet that many other sweets can be prepared from pumpkin. And a year ago I talked to a friend who loves a sunny vegetable. This girl shared with me a lot of delicious recipes, some of which have already been tried by me and accepted with delight by my household.
