You might have had the opportunity to snack on some delicious roasted pumpkin seeds after carving your jack-o'-lantern, but we bet you didn't know you can also eat the skin, leaves, flowers, and even the stem.
Pumpkin leaves, or pumpkin greens, are a common ingredient in African cuisines. The leaves are used in stews and soups and are a good source of vitamins and minerals. In Italy and Mexico, pumpkin flowers are also often often stuffed with cheese or meat and fried. In some Asian cuisines, pumpkin skin is used to make pickles, and in Indian cuisines, pumpkin stem is used in curries.
