Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater–that’s you!

There are countless ways to sneak pumpkin into any meal–whether it’s the seeds, guts, canned, cooked, or raw, main dish or dessert! Canned pumpkin can be added to almost anything and-voila!-out comes the perfect Fall treat. Add it to your oatmeal in the mornings, your cookie recipe, smoothies, etc. Try our Dinner in a Pumpkin or Garlic Parmesan Pumpkin Seeds.

**If a recipe calls for canned pumpkin, you can always replace it with fresh.

**Placing a small pumpkin in the microwave for 6 minutes will make it easy to scoop out the insides!
