Can you eat canned pumpkin without cooking it?
While most people assume that canned pumpkin must be cooked before eating, this is not actually the case. Canned pumpkin is already cooked and merely needs to be heated before consuming.
This means that it can be used in a variety of recipes without any additional preparation like I do with my No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake recipe. However, some people do prefer to cook canned pumpkin before eating it. This helps to bring out the flavor and make the texture more smooth.
Whether you choose to cook canned pumpkin or not, it is a versatile and convenient ingredient that can be used in many different dishes.
