The Benefits of Using Canned Pumpkin
While fresh might always be best when it comes to achieving a healthy recipe, there are a ton of benefits to using canned pumpkin for recipes. Canned pumpkin might be a little more fattening than fresh pumpkin, but it is well worth it for the tasty benefits.
1. Canned pumpkin comes pre-spiced! Most canned pumpkin is already sweetened and tasty, helping you to skip a few steps in most recipes. Instead of mixing up tons of spices, you can just add canned pumpkin to bread, doughnut, and other recipes for an enchanced flavor.
2. You can get it year-round. Pumpkins are undoubtedly a seasonal treat, but canned pumpkin lasts for a long time! This means you can make it year-round and it tastes just as good as it would in the fall.
3. It's MUCH easier! If you have ever had to core out a pumpkin for a recipe and remove the seeds, you know it can be a lot of work. Canned pumpkin allows you to skip this step.
4. It's easier to find. Not all supermarkets have the right kind of pumpkin for your recipe. When making a pie of a sweet treat, you will need a pie pumpkin. Those aren't always easy to come by, especially close to Thanksgiving. Decorative pumpkins (the ones your carve) won't taste the same. In fact, many pumpkin patches breed their pumpkins to be bigger and aesthetically pleasing and don't worry about the taste at all.
