Where has all the canned pumpkin gone?

Fall would not be Fall in our kitchen if we did not have everything made with pumpkin!  The problem right now, is that Hurricane Irene wiped out so many pumpkin crops that there is not a can of Pure Pumpkin to be found anywhere....Friends in England, Germany and here in the US can't find it!



I am making a plea to you, my followers....IF your store carries Canned Pumpkin (solid, not puree)...I am in need of some...I will pay you for them (and shipping)....would love to hear from you!  Thanks so much!

I'm not sure what you need it for, but have you ever made it yourself? You just buy one of those small pie pumpkins, cut it in half, clean out the seeds, wrap each half in tin foil, and bake it. Once it's done, you scrape out the pumpkin from the shell (is that what it's called? lol) and it's ready to use! It would probably be 2-3 cans worth.

Really? I haven't even really paid attention. When I go to the grocery I will keep an eye out!

You cna also steam it, then pureee it in a blender so it's smooth. I made a ton last year and froze it, so I'm set for this year. :) Also the canned pumpkin is often more butternut squash than pumpkin, so if you want true pumpkin, making it yourself is the only way to know for sure you've got it.

I make pumpkin cookies and cakes...only 2 ingredients...1 yellow cake boxed mix and 1 can solid pumpkin...that's it...mix and bake.the most moist delicious you have ever had...really easy and the kids help out...I would have to try it the other way using real pumpkin but not sure if it comes out the same way....

I got some at ShopRite this past week. 2 Cans of Libby's because I had a coupon for $1.00 off two Libby's canned fruit! I keep picking it up as I see it.

Mama M~ Have you been keeping up with me????lol That is all we use.I have noticed our shelves are stocked but I would rather you learn how to puree your own and it is healthier!!!!
I do the same CUT in halfs,MICROWAVE for 6 to 10 minutes(you need it really soft)the pumkpin shell will just peel off,cut into smaller chcunks then PUREE in the blender and FREEZE then in the amounts that you will need.

If you wont we do have canned here at WALMART,I am going to town in the morning for baking supplies for the market tell me and I will pick what you need.Shane thinks this is funny,I love it.
My cell is 317604-0509(at&t)call me anytime.
Blessings~

I was shopping today and my walmart has cases of it. I only picked up 4 cans for myself today and I thought of you and this post. They are $1.68 per can.
