TRADITIONAL AMERICAN RECIPE: Homemade Pumpkin Puree ( for Pumpkin Pie ) is a fresh alternative to the canned variety.
The main problem with canned Pumpkin Puree ( for Pumpkin Pie ) is that it is not safe to use as you might think. Most canned food these days have a plastic coating inside the can to supposedly keep the food, vegetables, and fruits – fresh. Well, it may keep them more fresh that otherwise without it being stored up inside a metal object, but this comes at the expense of harming you.
- This plastic coating is Bisphenol or BPA for short and it is harmful.
- If there is no plastic coating inside, you'll have Aluminum inside the food you have bought. Over a period of time Aluminum accumulation in body can cause memory problem like Alzheimer’s.
I love homemade cooking. Mainly because at least I know the ingredients I use, I can choose them and I am responsible for my own final product, made entirely from scratch, i.e. no prepackaged or prepared foods.
Obviously canned Pumpkin Puree ( for Pumpkin Pie ) is way more delicious if you are not used to fresh food. Companies use many ingredients that keeps you addicted and bring you back to buy that very product over and over again. But, fresh puree, to my humble opinion, is just as good as, if not better than, the fresh stuff. And you know me—I’m always willing to go along with a more convenient shortcut. But all I can tell you is that in my experience…in my isolated, agoraphobic, reclusive experience…I’ve been more pleased with the outcome of pumpkin-based dishes in which I’ve used the from-scratch puree. So give it a try this year! Substitute homemade for the stuff in the can.
