  THEME    Cook it Yourself

woman cookingThis week the Wall Street Journal reported on a prepared-foods research study completed by Simone Dohle of the University of Cologne. Doctor Dohle co-wrote the research paper with Sina Rall and Michael Siegrist of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. Go Switzerland!
 
Taste tests showed that when it comes to healthy food, people like their own preparation better than the same recipe ready-made. Psychologists call this the “justification of effort”, because when people overvalue objects they put effort into. This explains a lot of crafts that are stuffed in attics, and crocheting.
 
Okay but here is what’s really interesting: the preference for self-made meals changes when the food is unhealthy. In other words, even though you made it you still know it's crap. 
 
Finally, Doctor Dohle (our hero) says “There’s this second process: If you prepare something, you become more aware of all of the ingredients you put into your food. Food preparation could be a way to foster healthy eating habits.” We get that!

Sweet Pie Pumpkin
Barber's Farm (OG)

Pumpkins are part of the Winter Squash family and can be used interchangeably with many different Winter Squash varieties. There are dozens of varieties of pumpkins ranging in color from near-white to green. Varieties that are best used for cooking are generally called sweet pumpkins. You can either freeze chunks of raw pumpkin or you can cook the pumpkin and puree it and then freeze the puree. The puree can be used like canned pumpkin. The frozen chunks can be used in recipes that call for raw pumpkin.
