Roasted Pumpkin Wedges with Hot Honey
Roasting pumpkin not only brings out its natural sweetness, it also develops a creamy texture. Top it off with hot honey, and you have a unique way to serve pumpkin! Hot honey, which is infused with chiles, can be found next to the regular honey at the grocery store, or feel free to make your own using one of the many recipes found online. The peel can easily be removed once cooked.
