Pumpkins get pride of place on Halloween, but often get overlooked once the holiday is over. But there are so many sweet and savory ways to use these versatile squashes, you're missing out if you relegate them to the month of October. 

Toss jack-o'-lanterns after the holiday -- if they've been cut and set our for more than a day, they're no longer safe to eat. But if you have whole pumpkins leftover after trick-or-treating, or a can of pureed pumpkin sitting in the back of your pantry, use them to make one of these crowd-pleasing recipes throughout the fall and winter.

Bake up a pair of our Spicy Pumpkin and Collards (pictured above), packed with a savory combination of sharp cheddar, parmesan, collards, and Scoth bonnet chiles.

Rachael's Pasta with Pumpkin and Sausage calls for canned pumpkin, sweet Italian sausage, warm spices and a touch of heavy cream to create a rich and hearty sauce for penne that's full of fall flavors.

This hearty Pork-and-Pumpkin Chili is just the thing to warm you up on a cold night, and pack up for lunch the next day. Canned pumpkin, chiles in adobo and Mexican lager give it a robust base, while chunks of pork, tomatoes, poblanos and mustard green leaves add complex and filling flavor.
