It’s time to whip up all those pumpkin treats you’ve been longing for all summer long! Ahhhh…pumpkin season has arrived! This is my favorite season to bake. Pumpkin anything and everything are always on my list. Pumpkin bread, scones, pancakes, cakes, soup, muffins, cookies…the list goes on and on! Just thinking about pumpkin makes my mouth water! Growing up in Columbus, Ohio, every fall we would go to the Circleville Pumpkin Show. A whole festival dedicated to my favorite fall fruit! It was one of my favorite things about fall. We would make our way around the giant pumpkins weighing over 1,600 pounds, 14 feet wide pumpkin pies, parades, marching bands and of course every pumpkin food you could think of! Since moving to Peoria, I was surprised to learn that I lived very close to Morton, Illinois-the Pumpkin Capital of the World! Morton is home of Nestle/Libby’s pumpkin packing plant. According to the University of Illinois, 90 percent of the pumpkins grown in the United States are raised within a 90-mile radius of Peoria, Illinois. About 5,000 acres of the farm land is devoted to producing the pumpkins used for Libby’s Pumpkin. With my love of anything pumpkin, I am beginning to think that Peoria is a great place for me to be! I was super excited to hear that the annual Morton Pumpkin Festival starts today and runs through Saturday. I know where we will be this weekend!
