Can canned pumpkin be frozen?
Yes! It will last a few months in a freezer safe bag or container. You’ll need to thaw it overnight in the refrigerator. If you plan to use it again sooner than a few months, you can store it in the refrigerator for about a week!
How do you bake pumpkin seeds?
Wash and dry the seeds. Once they are dry, toss with butter and salt and lay them flat on a cookie sheet. Bake at 300 degrees for about 45 minutes or until they are toasty brown.
Can you eat canned pumpkin without cooking it?
Yes! If you buy canned pumpkin it is already cooked so it can be eaten straight from the can, but we recommend making one of these delicious recipes with it instead!
