Do You Need to Cook Canned Pumpkin?

Jim Leff | Jan 19, 2010 03:40 PM

So I bought a couple cans of organic pumpkin at Trader Joe's, figuring it'd be a versatile, healthy carb to serve with various things in various ways.

But there are no instructions on the can. Does this stuff need to be cooked, or will warming suffice?

I guess it's a dumb question; nothing in cans ever seems to need cooking. But I don't know. I was raised on canned food, shirked from studying its preparation (eating it was sufficient trauma), and have pretty much rejected it ever since...
