Alas, poor Yorick....

green pumpkin carved into goblin head

green pumpkin made into pumpkin soup

I'm using a recipe I found here. It smells quite good so far, so we'll see how it turns out. The flesh of the green pumpkin was darker than the orange pumpkins we got, and the rind was *much* thinner - the pie pumpkin had a hard shell that was easy to scrape from after cooking. The green pumpkin's rind was more like cucumbers or sweet potatoes - it stayed very thin and was a bit of a pain to de-flesh. I hope the soup is worth it.
