Why pumpkin is the best thing to eat this fall (and how to do it right)
Since pumpkins are plentiful this time of year (and ya might just be carving one up in the coming weeks, anyway), we’re giving you an easy-peasy guide on prepping them for the tastiest bites autumn has to offer. Here we go…
Step #1: Clean it
Have an adult cut off the top of the pumpkin, then use a big spoon to scrape out the insides. Don’t toss ‘em in the trash, though! Set those babies to the side.
Step #2: Nuke it
Once your (small) pumpkin is cleaned out, microwave it for about six minutes to soften up the meat.
Step #3: Scoop it
Use that spoon from Step #2 to scoop out the soft insides, then use in any recipe that calls for pumpkin.
Step #4: Roast it
Remember those guts you set aside? Pull out the seeds, use a towel to clean ‘em off, then arrange them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with seasoning and roast for 15 minutes at 160 degrees, then serve. Yum!
