Homemade Pumpkin & Apple Muffins
Making your own fresh pumpkin versus using canned will give you an entirely different taste. Fresh pumpkin is light and flavorful and canned is dense with a heavier consistency. Baking your own pumpkin is so easy. The best varieties to buy are sugar, cheese, white, lumina, Cinderella or heirloom pumpkins. Since pumpkin is a squash, some of the top chefs go outside the box and use the sweeter Blue Hubbard Squash which has a richer flavor.
