As soon as October rolls around, you see pumpkin-shaped figures all over the place, seriously everywhere! From the entrance to the grocery store to the doorsteps of your neighbor’s home, it’s no secret that the pumpkin is the perfect representation of the season, serving as a mascot for fall.
Some of my fondest memories of fall come from going to the pumpkin patch with my siblings, where we would each go and pick our favorite pumpkins (yes, I was the kid who always would pick the smallest ones because I felt bad they never got picked.) After our time at the farm, we would go on home to put on dirty clothes and grab carving utensils to create our favorite designs adding personality to the pumpkin tuned Jack-O-Lantern.
After realizing that while this process is fun and practiced by many families, not many choose to save the pumpkins and throw out what there is. Well, you’re in for a special treat. Literally! Instead of just throwing the insides of the pumpkin away, save them.
Over the past few weeks, I have found the best and most unique recipes containing pumpkin on social media and throughout the web. There is no better time than ever to share these delicious and sweet recipes with you. As tempting as it may be, I ask that you read all the recipes even though these amazing creations may drive you to put down your tablet and head to the kitchen.
