Nothing says Fall like pumpkins. I mean, apple recipes are great in Fall too but PUMPKIN is where it’s at. Check out these delicious and easy pumpkin recipes.
Did you know that the pumpkin is actually native to North America? Unlike so many things in our diet, it wasn’t brought here, it is a native plant. Maybe that is why it is such a big part of Thanksgiving celebrations in the US and Canada. 95% of the pumpkin produced in the US comes from Illinois…who knew?
Also, the canned pumpkin puree you buy in stores is often made from other winter squashes instead of actual pumpkin. The good thing is, it tastes so similar that most people can’t even tell (or we’ve been eating it that way for so long that we wouldn’t even realize). Just make sure you get pumpkin puree and NOT pumpkin pie filling! Otherwise, your sweets will be too sweet and your savoury recipes will be sweet too. You can make your own pumpkin puree if you want to make sure you get real pumpkin.
However you like your pumpkin, you’ll love this collection of sweet, savoury and drink recipes all featuring our favourite squash…PUMPKIN!
