So we just carved pumpkins, and I kept all the pumpkin guts! Anyone have any recipes for rabbit biscuits using *fresh* pumpkin, not canned?

I imagine you could just make any biscuit that you normally do, except substituting the pumpkin pulp as a wet ingredient instead of juice, water, or whatever other liquid you usually use?

btw, nice meme reference

I was wondering if I should puree the pumpkin or just leave it in the stringy mess for texture?

and thanks

Hmmm...I would see if Finn likes pumpkin before you go through the steps of pureeing it. I would hate for you to go through all the work and he ends up hating it. =p I'm talking from experience of course since I just have to have the weirdest bun around that does not like pumpkin. (Seriously how do you not like pumpkin?)

Finn does like pumpkin! I gave him a little sliver of it when we were cutting our jack o lanterns and he was nibbling on it when he thought I wasn't looking

@ Bullrider, Pumpkin is really good for them In moderation of course. It's great for digestion (in dogs too). It's usually recommended to get a rabbit eating during stasis, if you don't have critical care on hand.

I always have a can of 100% pumpkin in my cupboards just in case, and I'll break it open for an extra special treat sometimes

if you buy the canned pumpkin (just look carefully so you don't buy the pumpkin pie stuff ), it will be soft enough to put right into a syringe for feeding, but most rabbits will just suck it up off a plate otherwise.
