Edible Pumpkin SkinDid you know you can eat the skin of many fall squashes? Delicata and acorn squashes top my list…along with the seasonal beauty…pumpkin! Since I am eating the skin, I tend to buy organic or locally sourced pumpkins from farms which I know don't use pesticides. Simply wash pumpkin, preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and place pumpkin on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for at least 2 hours…but baking time will vary depending on the size of the pumpkin. I usually bake whole until the skin gives way when poked with a wooden spoon. Carefully remove from oven and very carefully create a steam vent by piercing the flash with a knife. Let sit on the countertop in the rimmed sheet until completely cool. Liquid from pumpkin will drain into the baking sheet…watch that it does not overflow. Once cooled, pumpkin skin will easily peel away from pumpkin pulp…and can be eaten as is or drizzled with a bit of coconut nectar and sprinkled with pumpkin pie spice. I have even seen recipes for dehydrated pumpkin chips…but my pumpkin peels never stick around long enough for that! Enjoy! …for more recipes like this and articles on life, swing by www.stewardchicks.com#dairyfree #sugarfree #glutenfree #veganfood #healthyeating #cleaneats #wholefoods #thenewhealthy#sugarfree #eeeeeats #foodisfuel #eatrealfood #healthyrecipes #veganfoodlovers #healthyfoodshare #bestofvegan #whatveganseat #eatvegan #pumpkin #pumpkinspice #fallfood #eattherainbow #nourish #organic #organicfood
