On tonight's news also learn that Nestle's Libby's Pumpkin is also facing a shortage. Here's an excerpt from their website.
Nestlé Baking today announced that it expects a shortage of LIBBY’S® Pumpkin on store shelves as the country enters the holiday season. Heavy rains persisted throughout the 13-week harvest in Morton, Illinois, frustrating efforts to pick the entire crop. As a result, less pumpkin has been picked and canned, leading to an anticipated shortage of LIBBY’S pumpkin products as the holidays approach.
While both companies maybe facing shortages you CAN make both items from scratch. Waffles are some of the best things to make ahead of time and freeze for later use. Plus you can make your own varieties to freeze and use later. Plus it can also be less expensive than Leggos.
Making your own pumpkin puree may seem to be a difficult task but it's pretty easy. Take a pumpkin, cut it in half, remove seeds and strings then place in a roasting pan with 1 cup of water. Bake until mildly tender, about 60 to 90 minutes, in a 325 degree oven. Remove from oven, scoop out the tender pumpkin (I use a 3 inch heavy duty scooper) then puree in a food processor until smooth. Freeze in quart bags.
Right now is the best time to get pumpkins but hurry because pumpkin season ended earlier this month so within the next couple of weeks you won't find them in stores anymore. If you can't find any in your local store (for Tri-Cities residents) contact the Country Mercantile in Pasco to see if they still have any.
