However, pumpkin can hold its own in other dishes, like this delicious spiced pumpkin, carrot, and sweet potato soup. Fuss Free Flavours brings together the flavors in this dish, and she even shows how to make it in an Instant Pot if you so desire. This soup is a showstopper; it would even work well on Thanksgiving!
Do you love apple butter? If so, you’ll love pumpkin butter! You can spread it over your cookies or muffins, on toast or crackers, and use it in custards or puddings.
