Blogwatch: Sweetly Sour Grilled Pumpkin for Thanksgiving


If you're anything like Nicole of Pinch My Salt, you may have bought a pumpkin this week with the intention of turning it into pie. But there you are now, standing in front of your open fridge, staring wide-eyed at the turkey, the yams, the potatoes, the corn, the green beans, the apples, the bread. What made you think you could make a pumpkin pie from scratch as well? Um, no.

If you're overwhelmed or just want to try something a bit out of the norm this Thanksgiving, Nicole provides an innovative, facile, and Sicilian take on pumpkin for tomorrow: Zucca Gialla in Agrodolce, or Grilled Pumpkin in Sweet and Sour Sauce. The pumpkin is simply halved, peeled, grilled, and marinated. And then it's done. Nicole admits, "No, I never got around to baking those pumpkin pies from scratch. But this recipe is so delicious and so simple to make, I'm not regretting it all!"
