This week, I’m sharing what I did with my extra pumpkin from carving this year. I roasted the seeds and with the pulp and flesh, I made treats for the doggos! Pumpkin is shown to help when your dog has diarrhea and constipation, plus most puppers I have encountered really love pumpkin!
Here is how I prep and keep the pumpkin ready to go for future use!
Step 1: Separate your pumpkin pulp and seeds.
Step 2: Using your blender, puree the pulp.
Step 3: Freeze your puree into small containers. I used candy molds and ice cube trays!
Step 4: After your puree is frozen, remove and place into air tight containers to prevent freezer burn and other smells and foods from permeating your doggo treats! I used the food saver to vacuum-seal the pumpkin into smaller portions so I could store a majority in the deep freezer.
Note: To remove my puree, I quickly ran the candy molds under hot water. For the ice cube tray, I placed in a small amount of warm water to help the puree slip out!
