Here’s a quick bit of info about pumpkins!!
The pumpkin is a member of the gourd family, which is native to the Western Hemisphere. There is evidence to support that the natives of Mexico were eating gourds as early as 5500 BC. When the Colonists arrived in North America, the Native Americans were growing pumpkins. It was after learning about these pumpkins did the Pumpkin Pie tradition begin during the Fall.
Pumpkin contains some anthelmintic properties, which is helpful against prostate disorders, stomach problems, worms, nausea and morning sickness! 1 cup cooked = 80 calories, 2 grams protein, 1 gram fat, 18 grams carbohydrates, with riboflavin, Vitamins A & C.
Now we’ve all had Pumpkin Pie, but how many of us have had pumpkin paired with apples? Enter Wild Mountain Gourmet Apple & Pumpkin Mustard!!! I personally love it, especially when slathered on top of porkchops! For a special treat, add some thin slices of fresh apple onto the mustard and enjoy!
