One of my all time favorite holiday recipes to make is a really good pumpkin roll. This year I decided to change things up a bit and do a Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Roll Recipe for you!
With the Holiday Season upon us, I wanted to share with you my favorite go-to holiday dessert but this year I swapped it by using Pacific Foods Pumpkin Puree packaged in Tetra Pak cartons into the pumpkin roll instead of using canned pumpkin.
This was my first experience using pumpkin in a carton. I use chicken stock all of the time and didn't even know you could find pumpkin this way. Did you realize how many amazing food products for your holiday meals can be found in a carton? You can even get cranberry sauce too!
So why use Tetra Pak cartons? Tetra Pak® cartons are made of 70% paper, a renewable resource, from selectively harvested, re-grown trees that are FSC-certified (Forest Stewardship Council) • Cartons use 1/3 of the packaging compared to cans…or even an egg! • Cartons are space saving, easy to store and open. Keep your pantry neat and toss your can openers. , stackable and space saving. • The unique packaging process preserves the flavor and nutrients of food without the use of preservatives.Product quality is exactly the way it was intended to be. • Recycleable and in fact result in 60% less landfill waste than cans • Cartons are re-closable so you can use what you need and save the rest for later.
