    Default Tips for Pumpkins

    Think pumpkins and you think pies and jack-o-lanterns, but this fall

    favorite doesn't stop there.

    Pumpkins are rich in beta-carotene, which the body converts into

    vitamin A to help maintain good eyesight

    Fresh pumpkin puree is often used as an ingredient in cookies,

    cakes and pies, offering extra dietary fiber to some of our favorite

    fall treats

    Baked pumpkin is a delicious side dish that complements meat or

    fish and at only 40 calories per half cup, pumpkins can carve out a

    place at any meal



    Before heading out to the pumpkin patch, take note of these tips that

    will help you pick, carve and display the king of all jack-o-

    lanterns.

    Pick pumpkins that are bright orange, smooth, bruise- and mold-

    free with flat and steady bottoms for easy displaying

    Plan your design ahead of time before you start cutting the

    pumpkin and use a carving set to ensure you have the right tools

    Display your masterpieces with battery-operated lights, instead

    of candles, to avoid the dangers of open flames



    Before your little ghosts and goblins head out to trick-or-treat, go

    over these commonsense practices to keep them safe and sound.

    Make sure children are never walking the route without adult

    supervision

    Instruct your trick-or-treaters to stay with the group and not to

    cut through backyards or dark areas

    Give your kids a flashlight and remind them to stay away from

    strangers and houses with porch lights off

    Remind them not to eat the candy until you have inspected it

    thoroughly
