Pumpkin Puree

You can make some lovely sweet recipes with pumpkin puree.

And not only is pumpkin good for us, but it’s also very nutritious for your dogs. I like to freeze some pumpkin puree portions, especially for my boy Newton.

Pumpkin Puree will last in the freezer for up 6 months, I like to freeze mine in portions.

There is nothing better than whipping up a batch of pumpkin soup. It warms the soul and offers comfort on those cold winter nights.
Not only is pumpkin soup great on those cold winter nights, pumpkin is also highly nutritious. In the UK we don’t get pumpkin all year round, so I like to buy it in bulk and freeze it. Either as a soup, in chunks or as a pumpkin puree. Soup will last in the freezer for around 2-3 months, fully thaw in the fridge before using. You can also store in the fridge for 3-4 days, ensuring you use an airtight container.
Roasted pumpkin seeds are really easy to make. They are great as a healthy snack or you could use them as a topper for your pumpkin soup.
Pumpkin seeds are highly nutritious and full of so many health benefits. They will last for up to 3 months in an airtight container, storing at room temperature.
