This Fall season take your pumpkin into the kitchen instead of just in your Halloween decorations. Pumpkins are everywhere and inexpensive. This large orange squash is high in potassium and Vitamin A.
Most of us have a favorite pumpkin treat but rely upon the canned pumpkin in the store to make them. While that is a fine option, fresh pumpkin flesh is mush better for you and not difficult to process. Fresh pumpkin is lighter in color, brighter in flavor, and preserves much more of the nutritional value versus the canned stuff.
Roasting your fresh pumpkin is easy to do and you get the bonus of having seeds to roast! I've created this instructional video to show you just how easy and simple it is to process your fresh pumpkin and get it ready to use in recipes such as soups, stews, cakes, breads, cookies, and custards. Let your imagination run wild. Once you see the difference from canned to fresh, you will never use the can again.
