CanningLive: Pumpkin Edition

Interested in learning how to process fresh pumpkins? Then join us for the second annual #CanningLive event on Saturday, October 3, 2015 from 1:00pm to 2:00pm EST as we live tweet the process. Although the event name suggests we'll be canning, the USDA recommends that pumpkin puree should be frozen (more on that during the event).

We'll live tweet, and post on Facebook, how to select, break down, roast and puree fresh pumpkin. By the end of the event you'll know how to make and store homemade puree perfect for pies, soups and side dishes.

Joining me in my kitchen will be Bren Haas (@BG_Garden), host of #GardenChat and local food enthusiast. If it's anything like last year's event, Bren will be furiously photographing, video recording and posting! 

Rather than a traditional chat with posted questions, we'll be tweeting and posting while we're processing. In addition to discussing pumpkins, we'll also post freezing tips, share pumpkin recipes and take food preservation questions. Followers can watch the process, join in the conversation and ask questions using #CanningLive.

Almost ready to harvest.

Lots of pies from a single pumpkin!!

Enjoy fresh pumpkin in baked goods, soups and side dishes.
