Regional And Seasonal Challenge: Pumpkin Or Squash

Regional And Seasonal Challenge: Pumpkin Or Squash

The challenge for this week is to use pumpkin or squash. There is no end date to the challenge as this is about challenging yourself to make use of a regional and seasonal product, hopefully in a way you have not done so before.

The regional and seasonal challenge is based on produce that is in season in the Southern Hemisphere. It was inspired by the volcanic ash disruption to flights in 2010. One of my first aims is to use produce that is in season, and farmed locally. I choose these food items over organic. The bonus to me is if I can find organic produce that is locally farmed.

If you decide to take part in my weekly challenge, please link back to my blog in your post and leave me a comment to let me know you have done so. I will do a weekly round up of all posts.

This month I am going to be giving something away to one Johannesburg based blogger – watch this space!


Hayley has provided is with an asian slaw, and a write up on ethically sourced products! Cindy has made meatballs using the spices I set for the ingredient challenge. Hayley has made a buckwheat and butter bean soup. My challenge had the idea of chermoula!

  1. Yay for pumpkin! I have already emailed an Aunt asking for one of her recipes that I have eaten for many years but never made myself. So here’s hoping she will share the recipe.
