Large, round and orange, the pumpkin is a member of the gourd family, which also includes muskmelon, watermelon and squash. Its orange flesh has a mild, sweet flavor and the seeds — husked and roasted — are delicately nutty. Canned pumpkin is an economical staple, one of the few whole- food items in the middle aisles of a grocery store. Just be sure to buy "100% pumpkin" not pumpkin pie filling. Pumpkin seeds are called "pepitas". See also Butternut Squash, a good pumpkin substitute.
