If you have a stockpile of pumpkins laying around, you COULD rock on with your bad self making your own puree. Organic! Sustainable gardening! Living off the land! We can practically smell your virtue from here.
But don’t break out the old knife and scooper yet. Because, come a little closer, THERE IS A COMPANY THAT DOES ALL OF THE PUREEING WORK FOR YOU. And we swear on a pile of Martha Stewart Living magazines, we can’t tell the difference between fresh pumpkin slop and canned. Don’t you ‘tsk tsk’ at us. We have both traveled the treacherous path of home pureeing and you know what it got us? Not fame and fortune or even rave compliments, that is for sure. It got us slimy and tired and picking seeds out of our hair.
With The Great Pumpkin as our witness, we will never again raise anything but a can opener to wow our family and friends. From appetizers to dessert, canned pumpkin recipes are not only adequate, they are fabulous!
A great way to start any day, these cupcakes, er muffins, are nutritious-ish too!
It’s an appetizer! It’s pumpkin! It deserves to be in your belly right now. These savory little yummies are great on their own or dipped in some Honey Dijon dressing. Either way, this is one of those recipes that impresses. Keep it to yourself just how easy they are to make.
How do you follow up pumpkin appetizers? With more pumpkin of course! This chili is hearty, flavorful, and on the mild side. Great for the whole family.
Sure, pumpkin pie is good. We are big fans, but a good crust takes some time and attention. This cake is all the fantastic without any of the fuss. It not only uses canned pumpkin, it uses boxed cake mix, too. It doesn’t get much simpler than that. This cake is so good, Ellen has been known to make it in August and the only reaction she gets is “Hooray!”
Or you could just use your canned pumpkin to make yourself the best loved one in all the land . . .
And we’re not knocking that. At. All.
In fact, we feel like the Wonder Twins: Underachievers Unite! Form of Pumpkin Awesomeness!
