Pumpkin is a low acid food and MUST be processed in a pressure canner not a water bath canner. There is no way around those recommendations (only if you ignore them…. which I don’t suggest you do!) Another¬†important fact before you begin: you have to can the pumpkin as cooked cubes, not a puree nor a ready pie filling. When you are ready to make pumpkin puree, simply open a jar, strain out the liquid, and mash! OK, have you got all that?¬†

Now, food suggestions for your canned pumpkin? Pumpkin pie, pumpkin soup, pumpkin bread. Or what about Pumpkin muffins, pumpkin butter, pumpkin vegetable stew…. And don’t forget you can add it to different dishes like; curries, salads, lasagne’s and soups, breads, pies and cakes! There are so many things you can do, and thepairiehomestead.com will guide you through the canning process. Click the link below to find out more….
