To many of us, the humble pumpkin is the star of the harvest and Halloween season. It can be seen on nearly every porch masquerading as jack-o-lanterns. The pumpkin, however, is not just another pretty face. It has other uses, especially in cooking sweet and savory treats. Check out the Irvine Nature Center to learn more.
