What is fall without pumpkins? When selecting pumpkins to eat you should remember that the flesh from smaller sized pumpkins is usually more tender and succulent. Choose pumpkins that are free from blemishes and heavy for their size. Store whole pumpkins at room temperature up to a month or refrigerate up to 3 months. Pureed pumpkin is also available canned. Pumpkin may be prepared in almost any way suitable for winter squash. It's also a good source of vitamin A. In college I stole this recipe from a friend's Weight Watchers program. It sounds crazy but there are no eggs, oil, or butter in these muffins..
