It’s really a very simple soup, but it looks elegant if served in pumpkin halves instead of soup bowls. And here, of course, lies a problem: how many halves do you get when all you have is one fairly large acorn squash? Right, you know your fractions – two. Those two are fairly large, too, quite a bit bigger than an average portion. So I was very happy when I saw little pumpkins that looked just like acorn squash in the Patel Brothers store.

    Ah, I have bought a pumpkin a little while ago to make soup of. Do you happen to know, how long a pumpkin stays edible?
