Northcot Rosemary Hazelwood Herb Farm Sept. 2016

Happy Friday !

I always scrape the pumpkin “flesh” away from the skin so my Jack-o-laterns glow brighter. The saved scrapings are used for baking ingredents. Here are 5 Savoury Spices and Herbs to pair with pumpkin.

The Science article of the week has a functional food angle… Can bell peppers inhibit nicotine linked lung cancer ?
