Hello Lovelies, we are so lucky with the weather at the moment and can enjoy a golden fall. So we spent as much times as possible outside to soak up the sun, but we are also amazed how you can watch the seasons change in nature. So at the evening it’s not that warm anymore which makes us craving all the delicious fall foods. And of course all things pumpkin are on top of our list. Do you know more about pumpkin and its history? I did a litte research and thats what I found:

“Pumpkins, like other squash, are thought to have originated in North America. The oldest evidence, pumpkin-related seeds dating between 7000 and 5500 BC, was found in Mexico.

Since some squash share the same botanical classifications as pumpkins, the names are frequently used interchangeably. One often-used botanical classification relies on the characteristics of the stems: pumpkin stems are more rigid, prickly, and angular (with an approximate five-degree angle) than squash stems, which are generally softer, more rounded, and more flared where joined to the fruit. Pumpkin fruits are a type of botanical berry known as a pepo.

 The color of pumpkins derives from orange carotenoid pigments, including beta-cryptoxanthin, alpha and beta carotene, all of which are provitamin A compounds converted to vitamin A in the body. Quelle: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pumpkin”
So additional to its health benefits I think pumpkin is one of the most versatile vegetables and I’m glad it is so popular in Europe now as well.

And of course there is a new recipe for you today for delicious Pumpkin Burger Patties with sesame. Easy to make, yummy and kid-approved.

The burger patties are crispy on the outside, but have a velvety and soft inside. Perfect served with a salad or as part of a buddha bowl.
