Pumpkins are ready! My neighborhood pumpkin and squash farm is selling a ton of them right down the road. Pumpkin is a wonderful food to have in the pantry because it so versatile.
The pumpkin that you make you carve for the Halloween, are not the same type that you eat. They are edible, but actual pie pumpkins have much more flavor and better texture. Buy a few to keep in a cool place, if you have the room. They will keep for weeks. I also cook mine and freeze the fresh pumpkin in 2 cup measures for year round use.
Here are 4 ways to enjoy pumpkin:
Pumpkin Spice Latte
Why stand in line at your local coffee shop, when you can just make them at home?

Perfect as a dip for cookies or a spread for our breakfast toast, this is all the good things about pumpkin pie.

Creamy and delicious, this soup is lovely served in individual pumpkins.
