Pumpkins


To me, pumpkins signify Halloween.  They instantly put a smile on face, and the thought of picking one with the perfect surface to carve makes me a little giddy.   The ‘scope’ of a pumpkin, however, is much wider! 

Quick facts
-       Part of the squash family
-       Originally from North America
-       Often forgotten about after October
-       Source of Vitamin A, iron and protein

Shopping
-       Keep your eye out for small, heavy pumpkins with firm and smooth skin
-       Steer clear of pumpkins with cracks or bruises

Preparation
-       Bake, boil, steam, or even cook in the microwave
o   Once cooked, easily scoop the flesh from the peel
-       Substitute butternut squash (or other vegetables in the winter squash family) with pumpkin and use in pies, muffins, cakes, casseroles and soups. 
-       Pumpkin seeds can be roasted in the oven on a baking sheet until golden brown for a tasty snack. 
o   Add a bit of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ginger, allspice, or cumin for some extra flavor. 

And don’t forget, pumpkins aren’t just limited to October!

PS.  Here is my Halloween creation.  

Inspired by Peter Pan :)
