Web Chef Review: Ontario Fairytale Pumpkins at Harvest Barn Country Markets

This attractive, beautifully formed and rounded, lightly mottled, green and lightly brownish, buck-skinned colored pumpkin, is an Ontario Fairytale Pumpkin from Harvest Barn Country Markets.

Web Chef Review: Ontario Fairytale Pumpkins at Harvest Barn Country Markets - cookingwithkimberly.comI simply could not resist bringing it home. My gorgeous, Ontario Fairytale Pumpkin specimen came from the Harvest Barn Country Market, in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Sometimes this lovely pumpkin is referred to as Musque de Provence, and is sometimes mistaken for being a Jamaican pumpkin.

Find out about this product on this webisode of What I Say About Food:

Fairytale pumpkins can reach up to about 15 pounds. It is so pretty that I can’t help smiling whenever I look at it, and it will have a decorative spot on my kitchen table for a while.

Web Chef Revew: Ontario Fairytale Pumpkins at Harvest Barn Country Markets - cookingwithkimberly.comSince I find it to be rather enchanting, I am happy to use its’ true name – Fairytale Pumpkin!

The copious amount of beautiful, dense flesh is very suited to baking and cooking. Pumpkins and squash are packed full of healthy goodness too.

Harvest Barn Country Markets have a fantastic variety of the usual and unusual, gorgeous pumpkins on hand at their two locations – one in Niagara-on-the-Lake and the other in St. Catharines, Ontario. Fine them online:

We are fortunate that Harvest Barn makes a point of bringing in their fresh produce, as much as possible, from within 100 miles of their locations, eliminating the need for the fresh produce to travel long, bumpy miles before
reaching their shelves.

By keeping the 100 mile policy in mind, it allows produce to be harvested when optimally ripe, in good condition – unblemished or bruised – unlike the toll taken on produce imported or travelling hundreds of brutal miles, and being forced to ripen in transit or arrive still green.

The carbon footprint involved, is also reduced by adhering to the 100 mile policy and it allows our planet to stay healthier, benefiting us and future generations.

Take a little time out of your busy schedule and stop in at Harvest Barn Country Markets to pick up a beautiful Ontario Fairytale Pumpkin, and other wonderful quality products to make your kitchen and life of food preparation more enjoyable.
