Carving a Pumpkin…………

Next time you carve a pumpkin – Don’t cut the top of the pumpkin. Cut the bottom instead, which will keep moisture inside the pumpkin longer. In a spiral motion, scrape the inside of the pumpkin until all the strings and seeds are free from the walls. Then it will come out in one drop.

Frozen Pumpkin Mousse Pie

Apple-Cinnamon Cake

Cinnamon and sweet-tart Granny Smith apples make for a fragrant cake, while orange juice in the batter adds a sweet, fresh touch. Make it for Rosh Hashana or any other fall holiday or occasion. The leftovers (if there are any) pair nicely with a cup of coffee the next morning……….

Citrus Ginger Cake with Spiced Orange Compote

Pumpkin Carving…………………….

 

Small paring knives are great for carving designs into the pumpkin. Pumpkin-carving kits, made specifically for kids or adults, are another good source. Battery-operated, pumpkin-carving knives also make quick work of even intricate designs.

Hold off on carving those Pumpkins…………………

You want your pumpkin to be in good shape for Halloween, so you probably shouldn’t take this carving job on too early in the season. In fact, it’s best to wait until you’re one to two weeks out from Halloween before you carve. As soon as you start carving, the clock starts ticking.

Pumpkin buying hints………….

Just like watermelons, the best pumpkins to pick have a deep, hollow sound when you tap them. To test for a good one, hold the pumpkin with one hand, place your ear next to the pumpkin, and knock on its side with the knuckles of your other hand. If you hear an echoing, hollow sound, it’s a good one.

Healthy Pumpkin Recipes

Roasted Pumpkin-Apple Soup
Apples add just a hint of sweetness to this velvety pumpkin soup. Try it as a delightful first course for a special meal…………………..

Avocado and Pumpkin Salsa
Store-bought salsas are convenient and come in many varieties. However, this avocado and pumpkin salsa–one you won’t find on any grocery shelf–is worth making from scratch. Creamy avocados, fresh tomato, and canned pumpkin are jazzed up with cilantro, lime juice, and a touch of hot pepper sauce, resulting in a salsa that’s seriously delicious. Serve with baked tortilla chips or over grilled chicken breasts……………………..

Pumpkin Ravioli with Olive and Fennel Tomato Sauce
This easy ravioli recipe features exotic North African Mediterranean flavors. The sweet pumpkin takes on the fennel and oregano flavors well; the salty olives and cheese combined with acidic tomatoes and lemon balances everything out. Look for wonton wrappers in the refrigerated section of the deli………………………

Choosing the best Pumpkin…………………
