Harvest season is upon us, and one of autumn’s most beloved harvestable foods is the pumpkin. This infamous orange gourd tastes great in just about everything, from savory meals to desserts. Best of all, it has numerous health benefits. It’s rich in fiber, which can slow digestion; it’s high in vitamin A, boosting eye health; improves immunity; can help you achieve younger-looking skin with its high beta-carotene content; and may even lower cancer risk. If you love all things pumpkin, try these six delicious fall pumpkin recipes.
