A Libby’s Pumpkin Shortage?

November 18th, 2009

PumpkinI was just poking around the Libby’s website sorting through various pumpkin related recipes.

There was a quirky little link asking if folks were having trouble finding their canned pumpkin this year.

I’ve had no problem, but being a curious cook, I clicked the link.  I was surprised to hear that there is a pumpkin shortage due to poor weather. The fields were so saturated during harvest that the tractors couldn’t motor along.

 I hadn’t heard about this, but found it interesting nonetheless!  So, I guess if you see their canned pumpkin piled high, you might stock up before supplies run low. Alternatively, you could try the Farmers Market Organic Pumpkin, sold in 15 ounce cans.

    The business section in the Kansas City Star today “A Thanksgiving Staple, heavy rains hurt Nestle’s
    crop, canned pumpkin in short supply”
    As I like to shop early I have seen no evidence as yet of empty shelves at my local grocery store. The store still has the fresh pie pumpkins 2 for $4.00, easy to prepare and I think make a far superior pie.
    I have tried (and do have on standby) the Farmers Market Organic Pumpkin, it makes a nice pie filling and looks a lighter color compared to Libby’s when cooked. It also makes a great base for a quick
    pumpkin/curry soup.
