A Pie of Lies!
By Diana Stewart, Executive Account Manager
I was looking for a Pumpkin recipe for an office potluck when I saw an article by Emma Crist about canned pumpkin. Intrigued, I read further. Apparently, (are you sitting down?) it’s not actually pumpkin! So, I started to wonder; If Pumpkin is not Pumpkin, then what in the canned world is it?! When is 100% of something not 100% real?
This short, funny article is a great read about why we have been deceived and why it’s perfectly legal to masquerade squash as pumpkin. I can 100% “squash” the idea that traditional pumpkin is unsuitable for cooking, because I have made some delicious pumpkin pies from scratch using only Halloween pumpkin puree! No more canned stuff for me. I think I’ll go back to making Sweet Potato Pie… which is of course made with Yams!
