There’s something about the shortening days that seems to cry out for the warmth and comfort of pumpkin recipes. Perhaps it’s the gloriously vibrant colour of a pumpkin that glows on the dullest days, or the fact they lend themselves to both spicy soups and sweet puddings that warm dark evenings. Harvest time can often produce a glut of pumpkins so it’s time to get busy making tasty treats to freeze for winter warmth. We’ve rounded up our favourite pumpkin recipes from around the net to get you savouring this delicious orange globe:

• Jamie Oliver offers up a recipe for the best baked pumpkin. Use to wow guests as a decorative dinner, or serve up to all the family for a nourishing meal.

• Getting a pumpkin pie just right with the perfect smooth filling and firm pastry isn’t always easy, but Delia Smith’s fool-proof pumpkin pie recipe comes up with the goods.

• Abel and Cole have loads of pumpkin recipes on their website, including the old favourites. We liked the flavours in the Tagliatelle with Pumpkin and Stilton Sauce for a new take.

• Pumpkin lends itself perfectly to soup with its creaminess. This Great British Chefs cream of pumpkin soup with sage is just right with warm bread after an autumn stroll.

• This is unbelievably yum and reminds me of Thai curries. The sweetness of pumpkin is enhanced by the lime and coconut milk in Nigel Slater’s pumpkin with ginger, coconut milk and lime.
