Description

Pumpkins are a variety of squash, always a favourite in the Autumn months as they are perfect to scoop out and carve into jack-o-lanterns for Halloween.

Quite often the flesh and seeds are wasted when making lanterns when in fact both are very nutritious. Pumpkins taste sweet after roasting and the seeds can be roasted and used as a snack or in baked goods. The skin is hard which is why they are perfect for lanterns but most people prefer to remove the skin before eating.

Pumpkin can be added to soups, quick pasta, stuffed or used for fillings for pies – although a lot of flavour is added – pumpkin spice.

Wash before eating.

* Like us, not all fruit or vegetables are perfectly formed and are not uniform in size. We don’t believe in discriminating against misshapen carrots or imperfect potatoes and in fact, love them for their flaws. A less than round apple is still as tasty as their perfectly formed cousins. Taste is what we believe in, because it’s what’s inside that counts. Unless your produce is clearly defective, please accept them as Nature intended.

Health benefits

Pumpkins contain micronutrients like vitamin A, C, E, and B2 with a substantial amount of manganese, iron, potassium, fibre, protein, carbs, and an almost negligible amount of fat. They are very high in vitamin A which is great for eye health and high levels of carotenoid beta-carotenewhich can be transformed in the body into more vitamin A. Pumpkin plays host to antioxidants that relieve the body of oxidative stress. They tackle free radicals in the body and protect cells from damage. In doing so, pumpkin can help keep chronic illnesses and diseases away if it is included in one’s diet.
