Is there anything better than filling your operation with the inviting scent of warm, freshly baked pumpkin? The great thing about pumpkin is it is incredibly versatile. You truly can’t go wrong with pumpkin on your menu this year.
Pumpkin muffins can be a great treat to offer because it is acceptable to eat any time of day. The same goes for fresh pumpkin bread — people enjoy it with their morning coffee or an afternoon snack. Cupcakes, cookies, and pies are also wonderful dessert options, depending what you want to offer. Pumpkin biscotti and scones can work as a great snack or side to offer on the menu as well.
The health benefits of pumpkin are plentiful. It contains a high level of vitamin A which is essential for eye health and helps prevent cataracts. Pumpkin contains almost 20% of the recommended daily amount of vitamin C, helping the body fight off diseases and common illnesses. It also has nutrients to help our skin age slower as well.
