Butternut Pumpkin

Savour the rich, sweet flavour of our fresh Butternut Pumpkin. Whether you’re enjoying butternut, acorn, or spaghetti Butternut Pumpkin, each variety brings its own unique charm to your dishes. Roast Butternut Pumpkin with a drizzle of olive oil and herbs for a caramelised delight, or blend it into soups for a creamy, comforting meal. You can also slice it into cubes and add it to your favourite stews and casseroles.

Look for Butternut Pumpkin that is firm and heavy for its size, with a hard, blemish-free skin. The colour should be vibrant and consistent, without any green patches or soft spots. Check the stem; it should be dry and firm, indicating the Butternut Pumpkin was harvested at the right time. Avoid Butternut Pumpkin with cracks, cuts, or mould. Smaller Butternut Pumpkin tends to be more tender and less fibrous, perfect for roasting and baking​​.

Butternut Pumpkin is incredibly versatile and can be enjoyed in many delicious ways. For a simple side dish, roast pumpkin slices with olive oil, salt, and pepper until golden and tender. Make a creamy pumpkin soup by blending roasted pumpkin with broth, garlic, and a splash of cream. You can also stuff acorn pumpkin halves with a mixture of quinoa, nuts, and dried fruits for a hearty vegetarian meal. For a fun twist, try using spaghetti pumpkin as a low-carb substitute for pasta, pairing it with your favourite sauces and toppings​​.
