    Default Can't find canned pumpkin?

    I don't know if it's just in my part of the country, or everywhere, but I can't get canned pumpkin for Gertie here. I was told the crop in March had a fungus, so no one has any. I called around and Trader Joe's told me that we can get the same benefits from canned sweet potato puree. So I'll be checking into this. Just thought I'd pass this on to anyone else looking for pumpkin.

    There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!

    Thanks Julie! I would not think sweet potato puree would have as much fiber in it. But I could be wrong. Let us know what you find out!

    I have some canned pumpkin here if you really want some, I can ship if you can reimburse me? Let me know

    Yeah I went and got her about 25 cans this summer at the Marketplace. They were $2.50 a can because of the freeze, and that was the only place I could find them. I am sure we have plenty left.

    Yep none here in southern cali either. I have also heard from the freeze the crops were destroyed so after fall passed that was it. This year i will be stockng up on tons and I am sure the stores will be looking atme like I am crazy but oh well. Have never heard that about sweet potatoes and it is good to know if in fact it works similarly. If not it is good for them anyhow.

    I was just going on what the gal at Trader Joe's said. She sounded like she knew what she was talking about. I figured it would be better than nothing til the next pumpkin crop.
