What is Halloween if there aren’t any “guts” involved? In the center of the pumpkin, you will find all the stringy and slimy parts to it. It may look a little unsavory but you will be surprised to know that the pumpkin “guts” can be used to make pumpkin soup. Add some carrots, thyme, parsley and other fresh vegetables and it’s a sure way to keep warm during this cool Halloween month
Now that we have the “guts”, let’s top it off with a little “flesh” to keep up with the Halloween theme. Baking is a huge part of embracing the Fall weather and what goes great with toast or muffin, butter! Use the flesh of the pumpkin to make pumpkin butter. Not only is it tasty but healthier than regular butter and it has lots more fiber.
It’s all in the face. One of the ways to pull off a great Halloween costume is your facial expression, so why not put your best face forward. Pumpkin is filled with Zinc Vitamins A, C and E—all of which are good for your skin. Turn it into a puree, add some brown sugar and milk and you have yourself an affordable at home facial treatment.
