Pinsteps. Pumpkins and Cucumbers: Staples of Romanian Cuisine at Huedin Market
Places to visit in Huedin. Languages: en

In Romanian cuisine, pumpkins and cucumbers hold a special place. Pumpkins are usually harvested in the fall and serve as a staple in desserts like pies or as fillings in savory pastries. The seeds are also roasted for a nutritious snack. Cucumbers, on the other hand, are a staple in summer salads and also find their way into various pickles and brines, often flavored with dill, garlic, or even horseradish. Given Romania's continental climate, these vegetables can thrive, especially in home gardens and small farms, contributing to their widespread use. Both vegetables have proven adaptable to the Carpathian climate, making them readily available at places like the Huedin farmers market.
