Pumpkins & Gourds:
Decorative and delicious! Our local heirloom pumpkin and gourd varietals are great for both baking and decorating.
They are plentiful and great in countless recipes that bring out their best qualities. Plus, they are available at the perfect time of year for comforting hearty meals that are also healthy.
Mollie’s Pumpkin Carving Tips:
- Cut the lid from the bottom, not the top.
- Sprinkle cinnamon inside the lid: When you light the candle it will smell like a fresh pumpkin pie.
- Get a pumpkin with a stem: the freshest will have a greenish stem.
- Put it in the fridge: Keeping it cool = keeping your pumpkin fresh.
