You can buy a ceramic pumpkin tureen for the holiday season.
Or, you can make one out of a real pumpkin, and have pumpkin soup to boot.
Select a handsome pumpkin of a size that suits your needs. Wash the pumpkin.
With a sharp knife, cut the “lid” off of the pumpkin.
Scoop the flesh out with an ice cream scoop. Scoop the flesh from the lid as well.
Toss the membrane; save the seeds to toast as a soup garnish.
Make soup from the flesh (recipes below).
If you’re making the soup in advance, you can keep the tureen in the fridge or a cool spot. We’d love to save and re-use the tureen, but we’ve never had enough freezer space to see how it freezes. If you do, wash the pumpkin tureen after you’ve served the soup, let it dry, freeze it and please let us know how it goes!
