Organic Canned Pumpkin
We’d like to start with a PSA – that’s Pumpkin Service Announcement. Every can of Trader Joe’s Organic Pumpkin is filled with the rich, velvety purée of a specific variety of Curcurbita pepo. This botanical species contains plants as varied as zucchini and crookneck squash, as well as winter squashes and pumpkins. Our supplier uses a proprietary variety that’s orange, but otherwise doesn’t look exactly like a jack o’lantern-type of pumpkin. In some circles it’s called pumpkin and in others it’s called squash. One thing it’s always called is delicious. Golden delicious.
Trader Joe’s Organic Pumpkin comes from a family-owned farm in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. They grow the pumpkins, and they also handle the cleaning, peeling, cooking, canning, labeling, and shipping of said pumpkins. We think this is the freshest-tasting canned pumpkin around, primarily because the vine-ripened, certified-organic fruit is puréed within hours of harvest and packed on-site. There’s nothing added – it’s just pumpkin – so you can use it in pies, cakes, breads, cookies, muffins, tarts, soups, puddings and any other favorites, and add only the spices and seasonings you want to make it just perfect... for you. (Or your dog. Yep. Our Organic Pumpkin is all the rage with the Rover set, as well.)
We’re selling each 15 ounce can of Organic Pumpkin for $1.99 – the same price we’ve had for nine consecutive Pumpkin Seasons – for as long as the season’s supply lasts.
