I have the fondest memories of my Nana baking Pumpkin Pies with LIBBY’S® 100% Pure Pumpkin the day before Thanksgiving every year. Fall is the perfect time to bake goodies, but with canned goods, I don’t have to wait until fall to bake my family’s favorite recipes. Target was recently having a sale on all canned goods, and I stocked up on Libby’s canned pumpkin. One of my favorite pumpkin recipes is for Glazed Pumpkin Muffins; the kids love them for breakfast year around!
How often do you use canned foods? Did you know that the canning process locks in flavor and freshness at the peak of ripeness and nutrition – just hours after picking.
- People who eat canned foods have higher Healthy Eating Index (HEI) scores. They’re also more likely to meet or exceed their recommended daily allowance for 17 essential nutrients, and are more likely to consume the food groups highlighted in USDA’s MyPlate healthy eating guidelines.
- Much like home canning, the canning process locks in foods’ nutrients at the peak of ripeness, sealing in all that freshness, flavor and natural goodness. That means this season’s harvest is at your fingertips all year long.
